Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 (20-ounce) bag frozen lima beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup mint leaves, loosely packed
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Special Equipment: Food processor or blender
Directions

In a dry skillet over medium heat, toast the almonds until lightly golden. Remove the almonds from the pan and set aside.

Return the skillet medium heat and warm the butter with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the lima beans, salt and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer, and cook until the lima beans are heated through and tender, about 5 minutes.

Carefully transfer the mixture to a food processor. Add the mint and puree until a smooth, even consistency is reached. Season with salt, if needed. Transfer the puree to a serving bowl and serve garnished with a drizzle of the remaining olive oil, black pepper, to taste, and the toasted almonds.
