2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 teaspoons Parmesan cheese
Black pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of water to a boil on high. Add lima beans and cook for 15 minutes. Add green beans and wax beans to the water with the lima beans; cook 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and rinse with cold water and drain again.
