The lima beans are considered the best, but other varieties are good. Cook in boiling, salted water until they are very tender. Season with nut milk and serve hot.

To Warm Up Shelled Beans

Pour off all the milk, sift through a colander, and mix with an equal quantity of cold mashed potatoes; add 1 well-beaten egg. Make into small cakes with the hands; place on well-oiled tins and bake in the oven. A little thick nut cream may be added if desired.
