I love limas and this is a unique, delicious way to prepare them.

We ate this as a vegetarian main course, and it was quite nice. I made a few changes: I added red pepper flakes and garlic to the sauteed onions. I left out the feta cheese, for personal preference, and served it over jasmine rice. Next time I may add mushrooms. I'm glad to find a tasty way to prepare limas. Thanks!
