Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 1 hour

  • 3 organic onions
  • 1 organic red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • 6 finely chopped garlic cloves and one cut in half.
  • 2 tsp. (10ml) of tomato paste
  • !/8 tsp. (.625ml) of sambal oelek
  • 4 cups (1000ml) of thawed organic white beans
  • 2 cups of organic vegetable both
  • 1 cup (250ml)of organic tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of fresh coriander
  1. In a food processor or a hand chopper, finely chop the onions and the bell pepper. Not pureed just small pieces.
  2. In a pan heat the olive oil over medium. It may seem a lot of oil, but it gives a fairly good amount. Then add the onions and stir frequently so they don’t stick. Add salt and the sambal oelek.
  3. After 20 minutes, add the garlic and the tomato paste and continue the cooking for 10 minutes.
  4. Then you will get the base of your recipe. Just this part is so full of flavour.
  5. In a pot, transfer your onions mixture and add the white beans and mix well to cover them. Add your vegetable broth one cup at the time until it starts to boil. The sauce will start to thicken. Continue the cooking for about 20 minutes on lower heat.
  6. About 10 minutes before it’s ready, add the coriander and the parsley. Continue the cooking for about 10 minutes.
  7. In the meantime, prepare your rice or you can also serve this with quinoa or couscous.
  8. It’s a dish full of flavour, even better the next day.

As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:

“Dearest Oana, Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes. I really enjoy them very much and I’m happy to share this one with my husband. He loves it, too. It’s easy to make and the kids like it, too (that’s a big plus). Well done! Thank you.”

“Just enjoyed a wonderful dinner on a busy day. This was a good dish for someone on a tight budget. I did add some onion powder and an additional cup of white rice to thicken it up some more. It also needed salt, maybe another teaspoon or two.”

“The combination of onions, bell pepper and olive oil is fantastic. My guests liked the softness of the beans but thought it lacked a bit of meat-like flavour.”

“I made this recipe for my husband while he was away on business. My husband said it tasted almost like Thanksgiving dinner!”

“This is a winner! My family loved it.”
