2-3 chopped onions
2-3 chpped carrots
1/2 a cup olive oil
pepper-could use chilli or paprika as well
you soak beans over night in plain water!
next day you throw the water, wash it and put nea water in pot and beans back in pot
add onions, carrots, celery
add water to cover everything
boil about an hour- 1 1/2
then add the tomatoe- finelly chopped..
the oil ,salt and pepper (and chilli or paprika if you chose to add as well)
leace another half hour to reduce...perhaps a bit more....
ALWAYS ADD PARSLEY AND DILL
soup should be just a bit thick, between watery and thick....
TIP- ALWAYS better the NEXT day..that's why I soak yesterday overnight I cooked today and we shall eat TOMMORROW!
enjoy our "national" dish...
we usually serve with fresh bread and some salty fish-like herring etc...with feta cheese-everything mention ON THE SIDE!
