White Beans and Rosemary
Lima Beans and Rice are a great protein combination
Lima beans and rice provide a good complement of amino acids and thus protein. The organic baby lima beans we provide are quicker to cook than other types of white beans.
We use brown basmati rice as the grain as Ayurveda says basmati is the most digestible rice. It is best to soak the beans and the rice (together or separately) overnight to make them more digestible.
The six Ayurvedic tastes in this meal
In this dish, there are all six Ayurvedic tastes. Ghee and brown basmati provide the sweet taste and the spices provide the bitter and pungent tastes. The lima beans provide the astringent taste. A squeeze of lemon provides the sour taste.
It goes well with these vegetables...
This is a great dish to eat with whatever vegetables are in season. For example, you can airfry some carrots or parsnip to go with it. Or you can add vegetables to the lima beans as they cook. If you are in a hurry, simply cook some spinach, collard greens or kale to add with it. Greens only take a few of minutes to cook. Ayurveda also recommends cooking them separately with a few prunes to make them sweeter.
