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! 😛
Take a day-trip exploring Chinatown in Toronto. Many would say this is the old Chinatown, as Chinatown has moved north to Markham. Torontonians would argue Markham isn’t Toronto, however that being said this is one of North America’s largest Chinatowns and one of 6 Chinatowns in the Greater Toronto Area. Along Spadina Ave. & Dundas Street West, you’ll be able to find many Chinese restaurants, shops, and outdoor markets throughout the year. It’s a great place to explore using your taste palate…. and for cheap!
Summer, or winter the markets are open! You can pick up some exotic Chinese fruits & veggies. You have the selection if you want Cantonese or Shanghai boo choy! Exciting right?
You can buy Chinese karma charms to bring happiness, wealth, prosperity & many blessings! Maybe a good house-warming gift?
With over 2000 stores across Asia & North America, TenRen’s is the place to buy your tea! They even created a jingle that is stuck in my head, ” buy three, get 1 free!” You can find it at 454 Dundas St W.
I love these spicy lamb & fish-ball skewers. They take about 10 minutes to cook, which is a perfect about of time to explore stores close by. You can get 4 skewers for $5.00. I don’t know about you, but I get excited! It’s right before the north-east corner at Spadina Ave. & Dundas Street West on Dundas.
Dumpling House Restaurant is a tasty & very inexpensive place to eat. It’s located at 328 Spadina Ave, Toronto. It’s open from 11:00 a.m. – 11:00p.m. Nom Nom Nom…..
This place is a great travel escape for the day in Toronto to Asia if your a tourist or local!

Love this city! #1LOVETO #AdelaideSt #Toronto
