EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Each vegetarian vegetable bouillon cube equals 2 teaspoons of granulated vegetable-flavor instant bouillon. Two cubes give this sauté a full-bodied flavor.

Butter beans are another name for lima beans. Young limas are pale green, but as they mature, they develop the pale yellow color that gives them their common name of butter beans.
