Recipe: Greek Stewed Lima Beans

by Carrinicole

This is the dish that made me like lima beans.

The deep flavors that develop after cooking for 1 hour and 15 minutes combined with the texture of the beans along with the onion and tomatoes, make this dish a stand-out not just as a side dish but to eat as a main.
