Number of Servings: 6


    1 lb. dry large white lima beans (Camellia brand used)
    2 stalks of celery, chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 cup of chopped carrots
    2 cups of baby kale
    1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
    1 tablespoon dry parsley


Serve over rice.


Rinse and sort the beans. Place in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and boil until beans are tender and will mash. Mash some of the beans and stir in the other ingredients. Bring back to boil, cover, reduce heat to low and cook for at least another hour. You don't want the bean mixture to be watery. We cook ours for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally and adding water if necessary.
