These vegetarian lima beans are made with molasses and brown sugar sauce mixture. Sour cream is added near the end of the cooking time.


Steps to Make It

  1. Put the beans in a large saucepan or Dutch oven and cover with water; soak overnight.

  2. Drain the beans and refill the pot with water to cover beans; bring to boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer gently until tender. Drain.

  3. In the slow cooker, combine the drained lima beans and butter.

  4. In a bowl, combine the molasses, brown sugar, salt, and dry mustard. Add to the beans and mix to combine.

  5. Cover and cook on low for 3 to 5 hours.

  6. Add the sour cream about 15 to 20 minutes before the beans are done.
