    UmmBinat's Note:

    A rich delicious soup. Good as a part of suhoor or futoor (iftar) the meals before sunrise and fajr prayer and after sunset & maghreb prayer during the month of Ramadan. Here is what the original poster had to say, "This is not only the most popular dish in Greece but Albania as well. The two countries share many recipes. The Greek dish however uses olive oil and mint instead of butter and paprika. This is a hearty, flavorful thick soup, perfect with a light meal or cold night."

      This soup turned out really really delicious and rich. However, I did have to make a change. I ended up pureeing the soup (personal preference) and found that the blandness of the white beans was a bit over powering for the seasoning. I quickly fixed this by adding a vegetable boullion cube. I think this soup is nearly perfect in every way but I would recommend cooks use broth instead of plain water to take it up that extra notch. Thanks for the posting!

      This soup really surprised me because, with such simple ingredients, it packs a lot of flavor! I must admit that I generally use canned beans for everything, but I decided to stay faithful to the recipe and soak the beans overnight. I honestly think using butter added a nice flavor. I was hesitant about the chili powder, thinking it would be overpowering, but the way it blended with the paprika gave the soup a distinct flavoring that was really delicious. I cooked the soup for 3 hours, but found that I needed to add liquid. I used some chicken broth. I can't wait to try this soup after a day or two, because its hard to think it can be improved! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
