Baby Limas and FriChik Stew My family has always enjoyed Worthington FriChik, a vegetarian product that tastes like tender fried chicken. It's absolutely delicious in this stew!

Serves 4.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb dry baby Lima beans
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp each: dry sage, thyme, rosemary and garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp dry parsley or cilantro
  • 1-12.5 oz can Worthington Fri-chik Original
  • 1/4 tsp season salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 c croutons

Directions:

  1. Wash and sort beans carefully. Soak overnight. Cook according to package directions.
  2. Drain Lima beans, reserving liquid. Set aside.
  3. In large pot, heat oil. Saute onions over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes and saute another 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in sage, thyme, rosemary, garlic powder and parsley. Saute another minute.
  5. Add 1 cup reserved bean liquid, drained Lima beans, Fri-Chik with its gravy, season salt, and pepper. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes.
  6. Serve in bowls, topped with croutons or oyster crackers.
* I have used Worthington Loma Linda vegetarian products for many years, and I love them. Recently, I received samples of the newest Worthington Loma Linda products from Atlantic Natural Foods, and in the interest of full disclosure, I have used them in this recipe.
