How to make Lima Bean with Potato Broth Soup?

Hello dear friends!

Today I am sharing recipe for a particular chowder soup. Chowder are chunky, hearty soups that are full of good things and many times they are more like stews than soups. Many chowders are simply cream soups or puree soups that are not pureed but left chunky. Most of them are based on fish or shellfish or vegetables, and most contain potatoes and milk or cream.  I think its generously heavy soup. I learnt this particular soup recipe from a friend. When I tried the soup for the first time, it was so good. Then I thought I should share this recipe. We don’t get to buy lima beans that much in Nepal. The photos I am sharing are lima beans which I planted myself in the office.

  1. Lima bean 100gm
  2. Potato 100gm
  3. Garlic chopped 1tsp
  4. Milk 1 cup
  5. Fresh cream 100ml
  6. Butter 2tsp
  7. Crushed pepper(marich) 1/2tsp
  8. Salt to taste


First wash and peel the potato. Take out the skin of lima bean.

Now the lima bean and potato broth soup is ready. You can serve this soup with different variety of bread. But because it is so heavy, you can also enjoy this soup as a main course or just with salad.
