Good use of lima beans

My friends gave me funny looks when they saw me putting lima beans into the food processor but we thought the spread was pretty good. I felt the need to stir in a little extra olive oil because it seemed a little on the thick/dry side. It was even better the next day as far as flavor goes. I'll probably make this again.

Easy, light, good for people who don't really like lima beans

I'm in Lima beans heaven.

I'm from the middle east, and recently discovered the Lima beans. I don't like beans, but after tasting them right out of the food processer I fell in love. Wow, just wow. I gave it great and not awesome because I think the Lima beans taste better without all the extra herbs.

This recipe is great, it looks great its easy to make and most importantly, delicious.
