How to make Fasolada:
  • Soak beans overnight in 3 cups water and rinse beans after soaking, do not re-use the soaking water.
  • Place the beans in cold water and put over low flame in the pot and simmer.
  • Chop all the vegetables properly.
  • Place celery, carrot, onion, zucchini, capsicum and cabbage in the pot.
  • Simmer soup for about 30 minutes, and then add tomato, parsley, garlic, pepper and stock cubes to it.
  • Stock cubes and tomato are added towards the end of the cooking because these tend to toughen the beans.
  • Simmer for a further 2 hours or till beans are tender.
  • Combine olive oil and oregano with it at the end of cooking to the pot or drizzle olive oil on the surface of the soup once served in the bowls.
  • If the soup is too chunky or too watery, blend the soup with a hand blender for a couple of seconds to thicken it.
