  "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 (
