"This thick, pureed soup, hearty and full flavored, is a longtime
favorite at Moosewood. For this recipe, you should use only fresh or
frozen lima beans; dried limas would give a very different result."

Pat's chunkier thicker soup: halve the recipe; add a slice of
jalapeno (a walnut-sized piece) and add undiluted milk powder. Simmer
longer: bring to a boil, then reduce heat to lowest setting. Set pot
on a diffuser and simmer for 2 hrs adding up to 1/2 cup more water,
as needed. Puree with immersion blender directly in the pot; puree
about half the mixture. -- Edited by PATh (firstname.lastname@example.org)
