I've made this twice and forgot to review it the first time. On both occasions, I omitted the oil in the initial simmer but did a nice drizzle at the end. The first was plain limas, the second was a combination of lima beans and green beans. This dish reminds you that a good dish can come together with just a few easy ingredients and that parsley is more than a garnish - it really imparts a wonderful flavor that sets these veggies up. All this is said from someone who is not a huge fan of limas. If I enjoyed this, lima lovers are going to love this one.

So simple, yet so delicious. This was my first time preparing lima beans and I was very satisfied with the end result. I will definitely stock up on those on my next shopping trip. Thank you.
