GREEK BEAN SOUP WITH A TWIST (FASOLADA)

Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups white dried beans
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot medium size pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon parsley optional
  • 4 fresh tomatoes graded
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 liter of Water
  • 3- 4 bacon cut into small pieces

Instructions
 

  • Leave beans in water to soak overnight.
  • Tip: This makes the beans softer, soaking all night in water and easier to boil.
  • To start off the cooking process, you need to boil the beans at least three times, before you add in any of the other ingredients. So, bring to a boil and drain, and do the same step two more times.
  • Once this is done add into your pot 1 1/2 liters of water, toss in all the ingredients, stir and let boil for one hour at medium heat.
