GREEK STYLE LIMA BEANS

March 8, 2013

When my children were young we bought a new book for story time that looked cute: A Bad Case of the Stripes by David Shannon. This fun story told of a girl who loved lima beans but was afraid to admit she loved them. When I read this story I realized I had never even tried a lima bean, maybe because my mom didn’t like them. I knew I had to try them and when I found this recipe for Greek Style Lima Beans… it was time!

This simple and easy recipe makes a fresh tasting bowl of green goodness that I often top with two poached eggs to make a healthy, light lunch or dinner. My kids and husband even like it and it’s an easy way to get another serving of vegetables with a surprising amount of protein too.

Reduce heat to medium low heat and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally until the beans are tender, 15-20 minutes.

Optional: Top with two poached eggs. (recipe for those coming tomorrow!) Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
