This week's recipes:

Garlicky Lima Beans

  • 2 teaspoon olive oil 
  • garlic cloves, crushed
  • thyme sprigs
  • bay leaf
  • 1/2  teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Sort and wash beans; drain. Combine beans and next 5 ingredients (through bay leaf) in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until tender. Discard thyme sprigs and bay leaf. Drain if you wish, some folks like the broth. Stir in salt and pepper and serve. 


Ethiopian Cabbage

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 4 carrots, thinly sliced

  • 1 onion, thinly sliced

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the carrots and onion in the hot oil about 5 minutes. Stir in the salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric, and cabbage and cook another 15 to 20 minutes. Add the potatoes; cover. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until potatoes are soft, 20 to 30 minutes.
