This traditional Greek baked lima bean recipe with added veggies is a one stop meal. Gigantes plaki is loaded with protein, perfect for all ages and so flavorful!
The next day, drain the beans and add enough fresh water to cover them. Cook over low heat until half tender, about 30 minutes, drain, and save the broth.
In a large pot sauté the onions in veggie broth or olive oil for 2-3 minutes until they begins to get translucent.
Add the garlic, carrots, celery, spinach and/or Swiss chard and sauté for a couple more minutes.
Add beans and mix well.
Add tomatoes, salt and pepper and sauté for another minute. Then add parsley and mix well.
Add enough reserved broth from the beans to barely cover them. If you don’t have enough reserved broth, then use water for the rest (you can also use extra veggie broth).
