Limas and Salsa on Naan


1 (10 ounce) package frozen lima beans
1 large red bell pepper, diced
1 large tomato, chopped
4 green onions, sliced
1 large roasted red pepper, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons vegenaise
1/2 (8 ounce) jar of salsa (mild or hot)
dash of sea salt
non-stick cooking spray
1 package of garlic Naan bread (or you can use pitas)

How we make it

Preheat oven to 350F.

Cook lima beans according to package directions. When cooked, drain limas and return them to the saucepan. Add bell peppers, green onions, tomatoes, red pepper flakes, cilantro and sea salt and mix thoroughly. Add 1/4 cup water and reheat til heated through.

Meanwhile, cut the Naan bread (2 per package) into quarters. Place it on a baking stone or cookie sheet and spray lightly with the cooking spray.

Place in oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until the Naan begins to get crisp around the edges.

While the Naan is baking and the bean mixture is heating through, using a small bowl, mix the salsa and Vegenaise together with the roasted red peppers and fold until combined.

When the Naan is finished plate the quarters, two per plate. Top with the lima bean mixture and garnish generously with the salsa mix.

Serve with fresh fruit and your favorite red wine.

Make 4 servings.
