After these messages...

I haven't forgotten my fellow eaters out there! I will be back soon with another great new recipe. I've been on somewhat of a vacation for the past week or so but we are headed home in a couple days. Keep on working your magic in the kitchen!

More beans

White beans are a great source of calcium (among many other benefits), so I'm always on the look out for great white bean recipes. Here is a great one starring Lima beans. This recipe is insanely flexible - I really wouldn't bother measuring anything but especially not the beans and the zucchini - but I'll write an approximate measurement for the sake of those detailed chefs.

Zucchini Succotash
1 cup Lima beans
2 diced zucchinis
a couple Roma tomatoes
1 cup corn
1 cup water (I used the bean water)
1 TBL honey
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp each: salt and pepper
garlic and peppers - chopped
1 TBL butter (I put that in because I
have some guiltless butter
but I'm sure you can ditch it)

Cook beans - Combine everything together in a stock pot - bring to boil then simmer for 10 minutes.
