Mashed Lima Beans

I know what you're thinking.  Lima beans????????

We were tricked into eating these at a neighbor's house for dinner, but they quickly became a favorite.  Now we have them quite a bit, and look forward to it each time we do.  They are very mild flavored, and most of what you taste is the chicken broth.  They are a super healthy alternative to plain white potatoes.  Be adventurous.

1 (10 ounce) package frozen baby lima beans
2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

In a small sauce pan heat the lima beans, chicken broth, salt and pepper to boiling. Reduce heat and let simmer for a 20 minutes minutes until limas are soft and most of the liquid is absorbed.  Mash or immersion blend.  They should look like green mashed potatoes.  Serve wherever you would mashed potatoes!
