Perfection! My husband is large-bean-phobic, but he loved this dish with its perfect balance of flavors. This recipe converted him! I omitted the oil; and I didn't have any fresh parsley, so I threw a little dried parsley in my lemon juice and allowed it to sit while I prepared the rest. I'm sure it would be even better with fresh, but it was wonderful this way, too. I served it with steamed asparagus and it was a perfect meal. Thanks!
