Greek style lima beans, a treat from Montreal

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.)

    hahaha what a small world. I was at Molivos recently and yes those lima beans were a real treat and something to remember. I had the swordfish steak and I was extremely pleased.

    MontrealMagic, we had the red snapper. Also the fried eggplant, which was incredible. Everything was incredible, actually. They really know how to do fish. We love the place and we really, really like Montreal.

    hahaha shortchef, every summer we are invaded by an army of people from Florida. Alot of Florida license plates, and I hear alot of Quebec residents head to Florida for their vacations down south especially in the winter. It is already getting cold and winter will be upon us very soon.

    No, it's not. Succotash has corn, the taste is sweeter than the dish we are referring to.
     
    You Americans love sweet on meat, chinese, vegetables.

    How did they turn out, Reaper? That is one reason I like to make them, the house always smells so good.
    Best wishes from another Virginian; I was born in Bristol!
