White Beans Soup فاصوليا بيضة


This is a vegetarian soup that is filling and very delicious.  I usually purchase dry beans and soak them in water overnight. The next day, I strain them and follow the recipe. Make sure to add salt when beans are cooked, otherwise they will take a long time to cook.


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pound white beans soaked in water
6 cups boiling water
1 (8-ounce can) tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
Heat oils in a deep pot and sauté the onions for 2 minutes. Add boiling water and beans.  Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 30 minutes. Check the beans if they are soft and cooked. Add tomato paste, tomato sauce, salt and pepper and stir. Cook for 20 more minutes and add more water if needed. Add vinegar and check the salt and seasoning. Serve in a bowl as a soup or with white rice. Bean soup thickens when it cools. You can add more water when reheating it.
