Medena's picture
This is a very popular dish in the entire Balkans, mostly prepared in Serbia and Macedonia.
Ingredients
  Large lima beans 1 Pound
  Onions 3 Medium, cut up
  Oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (to sauté the onions and carrots)
  Carrot 1 Large, cut
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Bay leaf 1
  Paprkia seasoning 1 Tablespoon
  Ground black pepper To Taste
  Salt To Taste
  Flour 1 Tablespoon
Directions

Boil beans for about 10-15 min., and then drain completely, and add fresh boiling water, bay leaf, salt to taste, and then cook beans for 2 – 2 ½ hours over low heat. By then it will be cooked, and most water will evaporate, check occasionally to make sure you don’t completely dry them out. Drain, but save the water, don’t discard.

In a separate pan, sauté onions and carrots, and when nice and caramelized add paprika seasoning, garlic, black pepper, and a tablespoon of flour, and mix it all into cooked beans. Carefully combine, and put in a baking dish of your choice. Pour the water you saved, over the beans, top with bacon or sausages, and bake. I bake it for about 20 minutes @ 425 F.
