Greek-ish Lima Beans

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb of dried lima beans, overnight soak or quick soak
  • olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1-2 tsp fresh dill, chopped
  • chopped parsley or oregano (optional)
  • 4-6 juicy tomatoes, chopped  or a big can of diced tomatoes
  • feta cheese
  • fresh bread

Method:

  1. Simmer the beans for ~30 minutes. Drain.
  2. In a casserole dish, combine the tomatoes, garlic, herbs, and beans.  Drizzle a hefty amount (~1/2 cup) of olive oil and stir.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 1/2 – 1 hour.
  4. Top with feta cheese crumbles and eat with fresh bread.

I made this a second time using a big can of diced tomatoes,  and I served the feta cheese separately:
