Loving the Curried Lima Beans

This is an awesome recipe.  You can make a big batch, put enough for a meal in the fridge and then freeze the rest in small containers for easy heating up later!   It will take you about 90 minutes to make it, including prep time.

3 cups of dry lima beans, soaked for 12 to 24 hours (put them in water now for tomorrow!)
2 tblsp coconut oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 tblsp curry powder (we really like curry so I added extra...the house smelt amazing!)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
(I added a tsp of chilli pepper too for flavor.)
10 cups of water (makes a thick stew)
2-3 cups of fresh chopped carrots and celery (you can used any veggies you like)
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground black pepper

In a big pot saute the onion in the coconut oil until they soften and change color, about 5 minutes.  Then add the spices and a little water and simmer for about a minute.  
Add the beans and water and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat to a simmer and add the other veggies.  Simmer for about 60 minutes stirring about every 20 min. 
Pour into bowls and let it cool a bit before you eat it.  Curry lovers enjoy!!
