Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    1 cup of large lima beans, soaked or 2 canned
    3/4 cup of finely chopped carrots
    1 1/3 cups of finely chopped celery
    1 cup of chopped tomatoes
    6 cups of water

    1/2 cup of finely chopped onion
    2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley
    2 tablespoons of all purpose flour

Directions

In a large saucepan over medium high heat, combine the soaked lima beans, carrots, celery, tomatoes and water. Bring to a boil.

In a small skillet over low heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and parsley, cook until the onion is soft, about 5minutes. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Stir the mixture into soup and simmer until the soup is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Makes 5 1cup servings
