One of the best vegetarian dishes I ever ate was at Molivos, a Greek taverna in Montreal. Every meal included a dish of these lima beans, so good and flavorful that I asked if they would share the recipe. They did. Now that the weather is getting cooler, you might want to try them. They are even better reheated.
Molivos Lima Beans
Ingredients: 2 pounds dried lima beans; salt; pepper; 2 cups olive oil (any kind);1 bunch parsley, chopped; 1 clove garlic (or more) 6 large tomatoes, crushed (or can of crushed tomatoes);1 large onion, chopped.
Instructions: Add lima beans to a large pot of boiling water; boil until almost tender; Drain. In a large baking pan, place all ingredients. Add one cup of water, plus salt and pepper to taste.
Bake 2 hours at 350 degrees. (Note: I cut recipe in half and instead of baking, placed in a crock pot and cooked 'em all day.)
These can be eaten cold, hot, or at room temperature. I also like them with a little chopped raw onion on top.)
