For an EASY and LOW-FAT version, I used canned lima beans, canned tomatoes, and canned creamed corn. I omitted the butter, salt, and sugar, and just added some garlic powder instead. This was great hot or even cold (served as a summer salad dish)!


I wanted to make something with Lima Beans so the ingredient search showed up this recipe. The recipe looked rather bland, but I decided just to try it anyway. I'm glad I did! Here was my version since I had nothing fresh on hand. Since I was feeding 6 people I used 3 cups frozen lima beans, 2 cans diced tomatos (with juice), 2 cups of frozen sweet corn, 1 stick of butter, seasoning salt, pepper and a touch of onion powder to taste. I simmered the limas first with the stick of butter until tender (15-20 min), added tomatos, corn, 2 packs of Splenda and seasonings. Simmered on low for another 15 minutes and Voila! Every last bite was thoroughly enjoyed by all ... thanks!

I used shelled edamame in place of the lima beans -- Not because I don't love limas, because I do, I just didn't have any. It turned out great with the edamame. I can't wait to try it with limas:)
