  • 1 package 300 g of frozen lima beans
  • 5 cloves of garlic skin left on
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a medium casserole dish or glass baking dish (this beat-up stoneware dish is just perfect) dump the package of frozen limas (it's okay if a little bit of water or ice crystals stick to the beans). And yes, go ahead and use them straight out of the freezer.
  • Toss in the garlic cloves and drizzle everything with the olive oil. Toss it up good so that everything feels like it has been coated with a bit of the oil then spread out in an even layer. Pop the whole thing in the hot oven and bake 30-45 minutes or until the limas are done to your liking. I like mine crispy so I leave them for a full 45 minutes.
  • To serve, fish out the garlic and slice open the cloves to get at the sweet and creamy goodness inside. Squeeze the soft garlic over the lima beans, give the dish a generous pinch of salt and pepper and toss it up.
