Hold your hat……Lima Bean Tacos :)

I came across this recipe in George Mateljan’s wonderful tome of food knowledge called The World’s Healthiest Foods.  It sounds kind of strange, but they are delicious!  This recipe takes just a few basic ingredients, and you end up with a nutritious and filling meal.


*1 (15 oz.) can of lima beans, drained and rinsed

*2 cloves of fresh garlic, pressed

*1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil

*1/4 cup of diced fresh tomato

*1/4 teaspoon each of sea salt, pepper, dried basil, dried oregano

*Optional: freshly-grated parmesan cheese for the taco filling

*4 authentically-made corn tortillas  (Try La Tortilla Factory brand.)


*Heat oil and sauté the garlic.  Add the lima beans and toss over a low-medium heat.

*Simultaneously……heat a drizzle of olive oil in a second pan.  Warm both sides of each tortilla.

*Season the garlic and beans.  Add in the diced tomatoes.

*As soon as the tomatoes are heated, turn off the burner.

*Assemble your tacos and add the grated parmesan.
