Thick n' Rich Lima Bean Soup

* 2 tablespoons flour
* 1 1/2 quarts chicken broth
* 2 cans (15 oz each) large lima beans, rinsed & drained
* 1 cup chopped tomato
* 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
* 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
* 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
* 1/2 teaspoon salt


1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, add carrots, celery and onion and saute for about 5 or 6 minutes, until onion is translucent.
2. Carefully add flour and cook another minute, stirring constantly.

3. Add seasonings, stir well and serve.


Lima beans are not my kids' favorite food. But I can serve them if I'm creative, or sneaky, about it! I've got a savory mix of herbs in this soup, as well as some carrots and tomatoes, so the soup turns out pretty kid-friendly. This soup is also pretty enough to serve company. Then I serve it as a soup before the main dish. I haven't had any complaints yet!
