    ForeverMama's Note:

    I love lima beans and wanted to make a simple recipe that was tasteful but quick and easy to make. I had made something similar years back but changed it to suit my taste.

      Simple and delightful, made DH's day! I'm the picky lima bean eater, and this seasoning and gentle oil bath made these lima beans quite mellow. I agree that quality extra virgin olive oil makes a difference in this recipe. We'll definitely make these again! Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
