FASOLATHA (GREEK BEAN SOUP)



Fasolatha (Greek Bean Soup) image

The Fasolatha (bean soup) Festival, originated in Florina, Macedonia, Greece, and is now a major cultural event in many Greek communities across the world. In the Northern hemisphere, the religious festival is traditionally observed near the start of winter - on St. Nicholas Day (during his lifetime he was known for giving sustenance to the poor). Food is a major part of the festival. Apart from Fasolatha (bean soup), Olives, Renga (smoked herring) freshly baked Florinian Bread (Pogatsa) Gyros, Souvlaki, Kebabs, and Loukoumathes (honey cinnamon - soaked donuts) are also served. Fasolatha is one of the heartiest dishes on the Greek vegetarian table, and a Lenten mainstay.

FASOLADA (GREEK BEAN SOUP)



Fasolada (Greek Bean Soup) image

Very homey and comforting - especially on a cold day, when you want a more 'stick-to-your-ribs' type soup. This is definitely better made a couple of days in advance, so perfect to make over a quieter weekend to enjoy during a busier working week. The cooking time is approximate as it will depend on how old your beans are, how long you've soaked them, and how you cook them (I use a pressure cooker to cook the beans and then proceed with the rest of the recipe in a standard soup pot).

Time 1h30m

Yield 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 13

1/2 kg dried navy beans, soaked overnight (cannelini beans are traditional in greece)
1/2 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons tomato paste
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups onions, cut in small dice
1 1/2 cups celery, cut in small dice
1 1/2 cups carrots, cut in small dice
1 1/2 cups potatoes, cut in small dice
1/3 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
salt and pepper
Tabasco sauce
Tabasco jalapeno sauce (jalapeno)
grated parmesan cheese

Steps:

  • Cook the beans until tender. Drain.
  • In a soup pot, add beans and enough water to cover beans plus 3 extra cups of water. Bring to a simmer. Add remaining ingredients, season to taste with salt and pepper, and simmer until vegetables are cooked through, and soup has thickened, about 20 minutes. (greeks like soft veggies, you may want your soup cooked slightly less if you like crispier veggies). This soup only improves over the next few days, so go ahead and make it way before you plan to eat it.
  • Note: At the table, I like to serve this with the choice of regular Tabasco, and the green (jalapeno) version, for people to add to their bowls as per their liking. I like a couple of drops of the red Tabasco, and a bit heavier on the green for more herbal notes. Also, for a more European flavour, a generous sprinkling of grated parmesan cheese at the table is divine.
