Last weekend I was wandering around Lincoln Square and walked into one of the independent bookstores and found Canyon Ranch: Nourish: Indulgently Healthy Cuisine. I started flipping through it and found a bunch of great recipes.
I decided to make the mashed lima beans and chicken with latin rub. The mashed lima beans were great although the book said to use a masher but I had to put them in the food processor to get the right consistency. Overall, a great side dish.
Smashed Lima Beans
adapted from Canyon Ranch Nourish
16 oz frozen lima beans
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup buttermilk
Steam the lima bean until tender. Mix lima beans, olive oil, buttermilk, and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Process in a food processor until smooth, return to bowl.
