Although lima beans are traditional, feel free to use edamame, white or fava beans too.Omit the feta cheese for a vegan option.Add cooked, chopped bacon if desired.Add in additional vegetables like green beans or sweet peas.Swap basil for dill or parsleyFresh or frozen beans, cooked al dente, are best. Canned lima beans are much softer.Fresh or frozen corn are best but canned can be used.Use coconut oil or ghee to saute onion if preferred.
