It is here I present to you my bean soup I made last night! Ta-dahhhhhh…. Let me tell ya, it’s come a long way since my first attempt when I was 18 years old living in an apartment in Athens. I had no clue you shouldn’t add salt to your soup at the beginning, as it would harden the beans. There I was cooking my “fasolada” soup for 4 hours, checking every 20 minutes on the status of what was happening. Was it because I didn’t have a pressure cooker I wondered? lol….Oh my……
Well, here it is…. Nothing fancy, but it has come a long way since then! Please note, I am not a chef. I just know how to chop salads well. 😛 Follow my Instagram – Bitches Love Salad Also, I should note, I’ve added beets which I typically wouldn’t add in the bean soup I usually make. I LOVE beets and they remind me of the Russian borscht soup.
* beans – I’m not quite sure how much. Was it a cup? 😛
*2 celery stalks
*2 cloves of garlic
*tomato sauce, just a bit
*3 beets – bulbs do they call them?
*1/2 bay leaves, sure why not.
*some olive oil
*salt —— USE TOWARDS THE END!! lol
1.I first soak my beans in water.
2.Then boil them for a bit.
4.Add all the ingredients, except for the salt until end.
5.HOPE FOR THE BEST!
Until next time! 😛
