1 1/2 cups dried baby lima beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups vertically sliced red onion
3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 cup diced smoked turkey breast (about 6 ounces)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 bay leaf
8 cups sliced collard greens (about 1/2 pound)
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Thyme sprigs (optional)


Sort and wash beans; place in a Dutch oven. Cover with water to 2 inches above beans; bring to a boil, and cook 20 minutes. Remove from heat; drain beans.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Heat oil in pan over medium-low heat. Add onion; sauté 10 minutes. Add beans, broth, and the next 5 ingredients (beans through bay leaf); bring to a boil. Cover and bake at 375° for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Stir in collards, vinegar, and tomatoes. Cover and bake an additional 1 hour or until beans are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in salt and pepper. Discard bay leaf. Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired.
