Actually a dwarf variety of the lima bean, baby butter beans (Phaseolus Lunatus) are flat, ½” long white beans with a creamy texture and sweet flavor. They’re also known as sieva beans, baby lima beans & baby butter lima beans.
Dried baby butter beans are best stored in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
RECIPES & TIPS
Baby butter lima beans are delicious in bean salads, pasta & bean salads, soups, succotash & other bean side dishes.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Dry baby butter beans should be soaked overnight and rinsed prior to cooking.
To cook them on the stovetop, bring them (in a pot of water) to a boil for about three minutes, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover the pot, and let them simmer until tender. One cup of dry baby butter beans yields about 3 cups of cooked beans.
