Vegetable Lima Bean Soup


Hearty and filling, this is one soup you’ll turn to all winter long.


Prepare the Soup

1. In a three-quart saucepan, sauté onions in oil until golden in color. Add vegetables and sauté for 20 minutes. Combine sautéd vegetables with bean soup and cook for additional 20 minutes.
2. In an eight-quart pot, bring water, split peas, lima beans and baking soda to a boil. (After adding baking soda, lower heat for a few seconds, as it tends to cause the water to foam and boil). Cook for one hour and 45 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add salt when beans are nearly tender.


Skinned beans are more easily digested and do not cause colic or gas. Baking soda softens hard water and reduces cooking time.
