Fasolada is a rich and nourishing vegan bean soup recipe from Greece.
It is the perfect dish for cold weather, and a happy discovery for vegetarians and vegans in mountainous regions of Greece, where vegetarian dishes sometimes can be hard to find...
After hiking up Mount Olympus (-yes I am very proud!) and staying overnight in the refuge camp before the final climb to "Mitikas", the top, was the occasion that for me epitomized the Fasolada, the Greek bean soup. It was the only alternative to the meat dishes on the menu, but it was worthy.
Hot, steamy, nourishing and healing (you wish!) tired and sore limbs from climbing all day, and preparing you for the final climb early next morning.
This is a recipe from my mother- and grand mother-in-law, who came from Kalavrita, a mountain village in the Peloponnese.
Serve the bean soup Greek style with a tomato-cucumber salad, feta cheese, black olives, crusty fresh bread and a small glass of red wine.
Kali orexi! Bon appetite!
