Canned tomatoes and frozen chopped onions and lima beans make this hearty side dish a cinch. If you like, make it more substantial with the addition of crumbled feta cheese or chopped Greek olives.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped fresh or frozen onions
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
  • Two 14-ounce cans diced tomatoes
  • Two 10-ounce packages frozen baby lima beans (4 cups)


Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute more. Stir in the oregano, cinnamon, crushed red pepper, tomatoes and lima beans. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are fully cooked and the mixture is heated through, 10-15 minutes. Serve hot.
