Fresh lima beans are a treat, but they are devilish to shell, so we usually resort to the convenience of frozen limas. The quality is excellent. This light treatment brings out their flavor in minutes.
3tablespoons finely chopped red onion
1package (10ounces) frozen baby lima beans, slightly thawed
Combine the onion and olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet. Heat, stirring, over low heat until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the lima beans and the broth. Cook, covered, over low heat until beans are tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
Strip the oregano leaves from the stems, finely chop, and stir into the beans. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve at once.
