Garlicky Lima Beans

Very good.

4 cups fresh (or frozen) lima beans
2 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, sliced
3 thyme sprigs
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Sort and wash beans; drain. Combine beans and next 5 ingredients (through bay leaf) in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until tender. Discard thyme sprigs and bay leaf. Stir in salt and pepper.
