GIGANTES (GREEK LIMA BEANS)



Gigantes (Greek Lima Beans) image

This is a family recipe. In Greek, it's called 'Gigantes' which translates as 'Giants.' Try to find the largest dried lima beans possible. My aunt adds small canned sausages, but I prefer this meatless. Serve with feta cheese and a crusty bread. You can also substitute 2 teaspoons parsley for the dill if you prefer.

Gigante Beans image

You'll find gigante beans in Mediterranean stores or at specialty food markets. If they aren't available, substitute a white bean such as Great Northern or flageolets. Beans are a good source of fiber and protein.

Yield Makes 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 12

1 pound dried gigante beans, dried lima beans, or dried Great Northern beans
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cups chopped onions (about 2 medium)
3 garlic cloves, minced
8 cups (or more) low-salt chicken broth
1 28-ounce can whole plum tomatoes in juice (preferably San Marzano), tomatoes chopped, juice reserved
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup ouzo (Greek anise-flavored liqueur)
1 tablespoon dried oregano (preferably Greek)
1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1 cup chopped fresh dill
Ingredient info: Dried gigante beans are large cream-colored beans from the mediterranean. They're available at some specialty foods stores and online at titanfood.com. Ouzo is available at some liquor stores.

Steps:

  • Place beans in large bowl. Pour enough water over to cover beans by 3 inches; let soak overnight. Drain beans; set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add chopped onions and garlic and sauté until onions are golden brown, 6 to 7 minutes. Add beans, 8 cups chicken broth, tomatoes with juice, vinegar, ouzo, oregano, and crushed red pepper to pot; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until beans are tender, adding more broth by cupfuls to keep beans submerged and stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 hours, depending on freshness of beans.

DO AHEAD: beans can be made up to 1 day ahead. Cool slightly. Chill uncovered until cold, then cover and keep chilled. Rewarm beans before continuing, adding more chicken broth by 1/2 cupfuls if beans are dry.

GIGANTE BEANS

Provided by Anne Burrell

Categories     side-dish

Time 13h10m

Yield 6 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

1 pound gigante or corona beans
1 large onions, skin removed, root end left on, cut in 1/2
1 large or 2 small carrots, peeled and halved
2 ribs celery, broken in 1/2
3 cloves garlic
1 bundle thyme
3 bay leaves
1 piece slab bacon skin or prosciutto skin, or a couple slices bacon
Kosher salt

Steps:

  • Soak the beans in water overnight.
  • Soooooooooooo...if you didn't think yesterday to soak your beans you can do the "quick soak" method, which is to put your beans in a pot covered by at least 2 inches of water. Bring the water to a boil, turn the heat off and let the pot sit until the water cools down naturally and then pick up the process as if you had soaked the beans overnight.
  • Strain the beans from the soaking water. Put the beans in a large pot and cover generously with water. Add the onions, carrot, celery, garlic, thyme, bay leaves and bacon skin. Bring the water to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer the beans until all the beans are soft, about 1 hour. Add more water if it reduces too much. Test the beans for doneness by doing the 5 bean test. Bite 5 beans, if they are all soft then they are done. Beans do NOT all cook at the same rate so the 5 bean test is important.
  • When the beans are cooked, remove the pot from the heat. Season the water generously with salt and let sit for 15 minutes. Transfer the beans to a serving bowl and serve. If not using the beans right away, store them in the refrigerator in their liquid.
  • Beans, beans the musical fruit...

Time 4h5m

Yield 4-6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 pound gigantes (or big lima beans), soaked for 12 hours, drained
1/4 cup Greek olive oil
1 large Spanish onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (15-ounce) can chopped plum tomatoes plus their liquid
2 cups water
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Steps:

  • Add the beans to a pot with enough cold water to cover well. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, cover, and simmer until just soft throughout but not quite cooked, approximately 50 to 80 minutes, depending on the beans. Drain and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a Dutch oven. Add onion and cook until soft. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and their liquid, 2 cups water, honey, cloves, salt, and pepper and boil gently for 20 to 30 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Stir in the parsley and remove from heat.
  • Place the beans in an oven-proof dish, pour tomato mixture on top, stir and spread mixture out evenly. Bake 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until beans are soft. (Check the dish during cooking and if needed, add a small amount of boiling water.) The dish will look crispy on top. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes before serving. Serve hot or at room temperature.

GIGANTE BEANS WITH FETA AND BITTER GREENS



Gigante Beans with Feta and Bitter Greens image

Creamy, hearty gigante beans are substantial enough to serve as a main course. Dandelion greens, most similar to the greens used in Greece, need to be blanched to tenderize their stalks and remove the chewy and bitter qualities. (You can also use blanched Swiss chard or chicory.)

Provided by Martha Stewart

Categories     Food & Cooking     Healthy Recipes     Gluten-Free Recipes

Time 12h

Number Of Ingredients 12

2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 cups finely chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
8 ounces dried gigante beans, soaked in water overnight
1 pound blanched tomatoes, peeled and finely chopped (1 1/2 cups)
4 1/2 cups water
1 bunch (about 6 ounces) dandelion greens, ends trimmed, cut into 3-inch pieces
1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
Coarse salt
1/2 cup reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled (3 ounces)
3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh dill

Steps:

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Cook onion until soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and tomato paste. Cook until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Drain beans, and add to pot. Add tomatoes and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and just barely simmer, partially covered, until beans are tender, about 3 hours.
  • Meanwhile, prepare an ice-water bath. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Blanch dandelion greens until tender and no longer bitter, about 9 minutes. Transfer to ice-water bath using a slotted spoon.
  • Once beans are tender, add vinegar and 1 teaspoon salt. Drain dandelion greens, and add to pot. Rewarm if needed.
  • Divide beans among 4 bowls, and top with feta and dill. Drizzle each with 1 teaspoon oil.

Categories     Dinner, Side dish

Time 2h20m

Number Of Ingredients 10

400g dried butter beans
3 tbsp Greek extra virgin olive oil, plus more to serve
1 Spanish onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp tomato purée
800g ripe tomatoes, skins removed, roughly chopped
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dried oregano
pinch ground cinnamon
2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus extra to serve

Steps:

  • Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, tip in the onion and garlic, then cook over a medium heat for 10 mins until softened but not browned. Add the tomato purée, cook for a further min, add remaining ingredients, then simmer for 2-3 mins. Season generously, then stir in the beans.
