Beans Double / শিম
Double beans, also called ‘Lima’ or ‘Butter’ beans because of their starchy yet buttery texture, have a delicate flavour that compliments a wide variety of dishes. They are flat round beans that are light green in colour.
They are used in curries, soups, stir-fry with rice, noodles and salads. Mix pureed lima/double beans with chopped garlic and your favorite set of fresh herbs. Use this spread as a sandwich filling or a dip. The heartiness of lima beans make them a great soup bean, especially root vegetable soups such as carrots, turnips, beets,etc.
