Arabic Lima Beans


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 16 oz. pkg frozen lima beans
  • 1 14 oz. can canned tomatoes with their liquid
  • salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion in oil until browned. Add lima beans (straight from freezer is okay) and tomatoes. Simmer about 15-20 minutes until lima beans are cooked. Serve over Arabic Rice Pilaf. This can also be made with green beans (frozen, canned or fresh)—the dish is then called Lubyi bi Roz (Green Beans with Rice). You can add carrots when sauteeing the onion if you like.
