This dish goes straight to the first place in my favorite foods list! It is absolutely perfect! I like beans a lot and I have tried different recipes but this one has the ideal combination of flavors. I know, I know I'm bragging but still...you have to try it and you'll see that I'm right.
Use dry butter beans! Don't cheat and use canned ones because I don't guarantee that the taste and texture will be same.

500g dry Lima Beans (Butter Beans) *soaked overnight, optional
2 onions, diced
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp dry tarragon
2 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon (if you don't have this ingredient you can double the quantity for dry tarragon)
2 tbsp sweet paprika
3 bay leaves
1 tbsp unrefined sunflower oil
1/3 tsp ground pepper
sea salt, to taste
Boil the beans for 2-3 hours (half this time if previously soaked). Change the water at least 2 times. Don't skip this step! Beans are hard to digest and if you didn't soak them overnight they will release bad enzymes into the boiling water.
