Instant Pot Ingredients

  • 2 cups lima beans fresh or fresly frozen
  • 1 1/4 cups vegetable broth 
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Hummus Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup tahini paste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped fresh
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

Instructions
 

Lima Beans Cooked In An Instant Pot

  • Place fresh or frozen beans, vegetable broth, salt, black pepper, and bay leaf in Instant Pot. Lock the lid, close the vent, and set manual time for 7 minutes on high pressure.
  • Once cook time is complete, quick-release the pressure.
  • Open the lid and add salt if needed. Mix well and remove bay leaf. Drain, saving the juice if needed to thin hummus.

Hummus Instructions

  • In a blender add lima beans and all the other ingredients, slowly blend until smooth.  The hummus will be thick so it is good to turn off the blender and scrape sides a few times in the blending process. If need be, add a tablespoon of lima bean juice each time until hummus is smooth.
  • Serve with pita bread, crackers or vegetables. Toppings could include olive oil, chopped parsley, or whole lima beans.
