Vegetarian Dinner Recipe: Lima Bean Hummus

At our Catskill B & B and Spa we like to mix things up. We take traditional vegetarian dinner recipes and change the ingredients. Here is one of my favorites


Here is a high protein recipe for Lima Bean Humus. Humus recipes usually use chickpeas (garbanzo bean). Here is a new take on an old favorite.

Serve with a whole grain pita and you have a nutrition rich high vegetarian protein meal

This recipe makes 2 cups of Hummus

12 oz Lima Beas

1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic


3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil

1 teaspoon cumin powder

Black and white pepper to taste

2 tablespoons of herbal Vegit – Low sodium salt replacement

1 teaspoon cilantro leaves





  1. 1.    Boil lima beans till soft. Place the beans and garlic into a blender or food processor. Pour in olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice; add basil, cilantro, Vegit and pepper. Cover and puree until smooth. Lima Bean Hummus can be served immediately, or covered, and stored in the refrigerator until ready to use. The vinegar add potassium and serves a s a natural preservative.
