DIRECTIONS

  • Clean and soak the beans overnight.
  • In a large, heavy pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrot and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are soft but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, cinnamon, cloves and saffron and cook for about 1 minute longer. You can wrap cinnamon stick and cloves in cheese cloth for easy removal.
  • Drain the beans and stir them into the pot. Add the cilantro and parsley sprigs and enough stock or water to cover by 1/2 inch. Cook until the beans are tender.
  • Stir in the tomato and salt and pepper to taste and simmer until the flavors are well blended, about 20 minutes. Remove bay leaves, cinnamon and cloves before serving.
