Place the beans in a food processor. Zest the half lemon and add the zest to the beans; then juice the half and add the juice as well.

Purée still smooth.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Recipe notes

6 oz of cooked lima beans is 1 cup or about 1/2 of a 15 oz / 425g tin, drained or about 1/4 pound of dried beans, cooked up.

Instead of dried mint, you can use 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint. If you don't have any mint to hand but do have a bottle of mint sauce to hand, try a splash of that.
