Borlotti Beans Soup

We like a lot borlotti beans around here. It is a great vegetable dish full of magnesium and iron.

Simple and quick are the key the words for that –kind of a soup– recipe. All you need is water to make the beans soft and a few of your favorite vegetables boiled together.

Please, please do not forget to serve Feta with them. The cheese will simply take off the taste of your main dish.

  1. Put a large pot, in medium /high heat and add enough olive oil to cover the surface (be generous on the measure).
  2. Saute the onion, the green pepper, the garlic, the cherry tomatoes for a minute and add the beans. Mix them with a scoop and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add some salt and pepper.
  3. Add the tomato sauce and enough water to cover the ingredients.
  4. Boil for 50 minutes into low temperature until the beans and the rest vegetables are tender. Check in 30 minutes if more water is needed, you don’t want your recipe to dry.
