    1. 1
      Slice the onions into thin slices.
    2. 2
      In large pot, heat the oil at medium-high heat. Add the onions; do not stir until onions start to brown.
    3. 3
      Lower heat and continue browning for about 20 minutes. You want the onions to brown evenly, but be careful they don't burn.
    4. 4
      Add carrots, celery, whole garlic cloves, and bay leaf. Cook for another five minutes.
    5. 5
      Add 1 teaspoons salt and pepper, beans, and enough water to cover everything by an inch. Bring to a simmer.
    6. 6
      Check beans after simmering 30 minutes; they should be almost soft.
    7. 7
      Cook another 10-20 minutes, or as needed. Remove from heat, drain, and reserve liquid. Remove carrots, celery, bay leaf, and garlic.
    8. 8
      Heat a saute pan over medium heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil. Add sliced garlic, anchovy paste, and roasted red peppers. Cook until garlic starts to brown.
    9. 9
      In a large bowl, combine garlic mixture, beans, sage, and one cup of reserved liquid. Season with salt and pepper.
    10. 10
      Serve with a first-rate crusty bread.
