"I stirred them into risotto but overcooked the lima beans so instead of being firm and the texture I actually like, mine were mushy and a texture i don't like. Otherwise the recipe was ok. Nothing special."

"I love this recipe! It is easy to make and raises the lowly Lima bean to a whole new level. I could eat the whole batch by myself."

"These did not taste like anything special. Maybe more lemon juice would be better."
