Seasoned Lima Beans, also known as butterbeans, can be used in a variety of dishes. Seasoned lima beans are an easy side dish to prepare and serve with any meal.
I can remember when I would have Vegetarian Cooking Classes many years ago at my home in the Bahamas where I live. In truth, this recipe seemed simple and was definitely a favorite of the participants in the program. Being from the island, we love grits and rice. It is a staple here to have rice for lunch and grits with breakfast. In this recipe, Creamy Lima Beans would be served over any of those grains.
Beans are my favorite food, I love the beans because they are very filling, and satisfying, the benefits are great and I find I snack far less when I have lots of beans and greens.
Benefits of Seasoned Lima Beans
Seasoned Lima beans have many health benefits that make them an excellent choice for people looking to improve their health and diet.
Improves digestive health
- It helps prevent constipation by adding fiber and other nutrients to your diet.

- It helps prevent irritable bowel syndrome by adding fiber to your diet.

Good source of vitamin K
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in blood clotting. It also helps protect against heart disease and improves bone health. If you’re not consuming enough vitamin K, your bones could become brittle and prone to fracture.
Vitamin K can be found in leafy green vegetables like kale and spinach, as well as broccoli and Brussels sprouts but it’s rare to find naturally occurring amounts of this nutrient in other foods. Lima beans are one of the few exceptions they contain 0.8 milligrams per cup (164 grams), making them an excellent source of this essential nutrient for vegans who don’t eat meat or dairy products on a regular basis.
It can help you lose weight
Seasoned Lima beans are a low-calorie food, so they can help you lose weight. They are also a good source of protein and fiber. Lima beans contain vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), C, and E. They have minerals such as iron, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc.
Lima beans contain plant-based protein which can be beneficial for people who are lactose intolerant since it does not have any dairy products in them at all! This makes them an ideal healthy snack option if you’re looking to reduce your intake of meat during certain times throughout your day/weekend depending on what kind of diet works best for each individual person living within our society today.
A lack of fiber is associated with diabetes and heart disease, so eating seasoned lima beans can help prevent these health issues as well. Lima beans provide a high amount of fiber and other proteins. Lima bean has been shown to lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. This makes them a great addition to any meal plan or diet that’s trying to control blood sugar levels.
The high amount of potassium found in lima beans improves cardiovascular health by lowering blood pressure. The study found that a one-cup serving of cooked black-eyed peas decreased systolic blood pressure by 5% compared to participants who didn’t eat any such food during the experiment.
