- 2 cups long cooking rice
- 6-8 oz lima beans ( I use frozen)
- 1 medium onion (chopped)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 4 cups of water
- salt & pepper
- 2 pots of similar size ( or a pot and skillet)
Pot One: Place 1/4 cup oil in the bottom of the pot. Sautee medium onion until translucent--careful not to burn the onion.
Pot Two: Bring 4 cups of water to boil. Add the sauteed onions, lima beans, and rice. Season with 1tbs salt and 3/4 tsp of pepper (more or less to taste) Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to the lowest setting. Simmer for 30minutes. Fluff with a fork and enjoy!
*Fun Family Factoid: Great grandma used to place a coffee mug on her lids to ensure a good seal while simmering!*****
