Corn and Lima Bean Pudding

4.4 5 Recipe Reviews | Rate this Recipe | 16 Saves
This delicious Corn and Lima Bean Pudding, casserole has vegetables baked in a nutmeg-scented egg custard is a Brazilian favorite. In a country where meat dishes are prevalent, this vegetarian dish was popular among Jewish immigrants in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It allowed them to dine with Catholic friends and maintain their kosher diet without drawing attention to their religious beliefs. For a touch of spicy heat, add some finely chopped malagueta pepper, the most widely used hot chile in Brazil, or your favorite chile pepper to the skillet with the onion and bell pepper.

I made this as part of our pot luck today at Church. It reminds me of the corn and lima bean salad I make, only it is a cold dish. The flavors go together well. With our "cold spring weather", this was a nice warm dish to serve...........

I found this was more like a casserole than a pudding. But good. However, I had to add some onion powder, not enough onion; and a dash of Cayenne, and some roasted red pepper relish. All in all, a great side dish, tho.

I make this for side dish my family's easter dinner today. It was a hit. I add a little bit paprika because my family love spicy food. Every body loves it and surprise with the taste because there was not meat!!!! My family is a meat eater. Excellent and thank you.

I have cooked a casserole'"kugel", very like this one but Corn and Lima Bean Pudding is even more delicious. I would encourag other cooks to try this hearty vegetarian meal-in-a-dish. Thanks!

Not sure when I saw the title if this would be a receipe I would try, being Lima beans have never been a favorite veggie of mine. But, with the other ingredients and the corn, am looking forward to putting on my Easter table for others to enjoy.
