Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

Lima Bean and Roasted Red Pepper Salad

This salad is so simple and absolutely delicious. 


1 cup cooked and rinsed lima beans
1 roasted red bell pepper
about 1/4 cup chopped parsley
1-2 T olive oil
squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Salt to taste (preferably a course, gourmet salt such as Hawaiian Red Salt)


Cut the pepper into chunks and mix with the beans and parsley in a small bowl.  Add enough olive oil to generously coat the vegetables, squeeze on some lemon juice, and sprinkle on the salt.


  1. Are lima beans a vegi or in the bean family? How advanced are they? Thanks!

  2. For GAPS, they are a bean, and are pretty advanced. I can't remember exactly how long the book says to wait to intro legumes. We waited about 10 months and are fine with them.
