Loved this. I get cravings for lima beans every so often. My guy usually doesn't like them too much, especially as a main course. I think he feels that they're too plain, but with this recipe he asked for thirds! I use frozen mixed mushrooms and frozen lima beans. Definitely lots of garlic too.
We love this dish !!! Have made it several times and it gets better each time. The last time we added some crispy fried bacon pieces and shallots in place of garlic. Fried the shallots and mushrooms in the bacon grease. Probably not healthy, but certainly good.
I love Lima beans! Fresh is best but when the season is gone either frozen or canned- I used canned for your recipe.. Got everything ready ahead of time placed it in an oven proof dish covered with foil heated in 350 oven for 25 minutes just before dinner. Enjoyed my dinner Thanks Stephanie for posting a recioe for an under appreciated veggie!
