  • I am not a huge fan of lima beans, but I do enjoy this: Crockpot Meatless Sloppy Joes with Vegetables
    4 cups red beans, cooked
    4 cups lima beans, cooked
    4 cups garbanzo beans, cooked
    2 large onions, chopped
    4 large carrots, grated
    4 medium zucchini, grated
    1 green bell pepper, diced fine
    1 can pumpkin (15 oz small one)
    1 red bell pepper, diced fine
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    2 teaspoons cumin powder
    1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
    1 cup catsup
    1/2 cup red wine vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
    salt and pepper
    Mix together onion, carrot, zucchini, & peppers. Microwave vegetable mixture until onions are soft. Combine everything except beans. Put beans through meat grinder on coarsest grind (I don’t bother, I just mash a bit with a potato masher). Mix ground beans & sauce mixture. If too dry, add 1/4 cup of reserved bean liquid & mix.

  • Continue this process until consistency desired is reached. Put into slow cookers (leftover mixture may be cooked on stove in a Dutch oven) Simmer in slow cooker on low for 3 to 4 hours. (If cooking on top of stove, simmer for about 45 minutes so flavors can mingle. ) Single batch fills large slow cooker with a little left over

    I cut this in half, and I usually cook on the stove, not the slowcooker.

  • Cut up ham, tomatoes, corn, the lima beans. Stir fry and add a little tomato sauce and herbs. (or a kielbasa fried and add the beans.)
