Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cup dry white beans
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped in small pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped in small pieces
  • 1 onion grated
  • 1 garlic clove sliced
  • 7-8 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste diluted with 1/4 cup of water
  • Ground Pepper
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Soak beans overnight.
  • Rinse and simmer beans for about 30 minutes until soft but not mushy, drain and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
  • Chop vegetables and then in a large bowl mix the peppers, grated onion, garlic, beans, olive oil, tomato paste mixture, oregano, and pepper. Mix gently as to not break the beans.
  • Add the halved cherry tomatoes and mix gently.
  • Pour into casserole dish.
  • Add ¼ cup hot water to the dish pouring it in a corner and tilting the dish so that the water spreads (do not pour over as this will wash off the olive oil).
  • Cover with aluminum foil and roast for about 1 hour until peppers are soft.
  • Remove foil and roast for about 10 minutes if you want some browning. Be careful not to leave it uncovered too long, otherwise the beans will dry out.
  • Remove from oven, let it cool and add thick salt as needed.
  • Serve plain or with feta cheese.
