    Angela Sara's Note:

    A very easy vegetable dish that improves in flavour the next day, and keeps well in the freezer. Add some cooked diced carrot for a 'sweet' flavour and some coriander and/or cumin.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Gently fry the onion in the olive oil for about 2-3 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the frozen beans (do not add water).
    3. 3
      On a low heat let the beans slowly cook turning the beans regularly as they defrost.
    4. 4
      The water from the beans is enough to keep the bottom of the pan covered in liquid (but keep an eye on it though).
    5. 5
      When the beans are soft enough to your liking add the tinned tomatoes salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Bring to the boil.
    7. 7
      Serve with plain basmati rice.

      not even close to a true fassoulia, which is a white bean stew from the Mediterranean.

      I can not give more than two stars to this recipe. Yes, it's easy, but that's about everything. It doesn't taste like much, not even with the carrots and coriander. I made a third version with some dried chilli pepper flakes which came out slightly better.

      My kind of recipe for those days when I do not want to think as I cook dinner. Opening packets and cans made for very little work and this recipe tastes pretty good.
