Garlicky Lima Bean Spread

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Jan Gautro

Roasted garlic paste comes in a tube, which makes it easy to squeeze out just the amount you need. Look for it in the spice section of the supermarket. Use a 10-ounce package of frozen baby lima beans if you can't find fresh ones. Serve with summer vegetable crudités such as whole radishes, baby carrots, endive leaves, zucchini, and yellow squash strips.
