With the exception for using white beans instead of red this was made right by the recipe. It's a delicious, hearty dish that is a wonderful for the cold months. This will take care of the hungry man or men in your house. It's mild but well flavored and should be a hit with the kids as well as the adults. My dear friend in Belgrade said that this is not only 100% the real deal but that this bean dish is found on almost all Serbian tables at Christmas Holidays. Thanks Serb Girl for sharing you great traditional recipes with us. They are delicious and most enjoyable.
