Lima beans make me really happy. Is that weird? I think there's a nostalgia factor since I grew up eating them, but they also taste really good and they're just so cute. Yep, I think beans are cute. They were the highlight of the dinner plate last night, so much so that I'll be eating some for lunch today all by their lonesome.
Lima Beans with Bacon and Onion
Recipe courtesy of Everyday Food
In a large skillet, cook 3 slices of bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, over medium until crisp and fat is rendered, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. To skillet, add 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced small, and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen lima beans, thawed, and season with coarse salt and ground pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lima beans are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in bacon and 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 4.
