Grandmama's Butter Beans
1 (16 ounce) package frozen baby lima beans (very important to use baby lima)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2-3 tablespoons vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance)
1. Put frozen baby lima beans in small pot. Cover with water.
2. Add the rest of ingredients and cook on high, while stirring, until margarine is melted.
3. Cover and cook about 15 minutes on low. Most of the water should be absorbed into the beans when they are done cooking.
We eat these at Thanksgiving with our Tofurky, as well as with cutlets (vegan pork chops).
