Legumes constitute an integral part of Greek cuisine. Bean and ham soup, for example, is among the most popular dishes with kidney beans.

Cook It cannot wait to introduce you to yet another no less spectacular dish — gigantes fournou, an insanely popular treat in Greek taverns! The dish features large white beans, also called elephant beans, baked with vegetables and tomatoes.

Steps

1
Done

Soak beans overnight. If you forgot to do this, boil the beans for half an hour, and then let them sit in the same water for an hour. Drain water and place in a deep baking dish.

2
Done

Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Fry onion cut into rings and chopped garlic until soft. Add thinly sliced ​​carrots, sliced ​​bell peppers, diced celeriac. Stew for 7 minutes. Add peeled and chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, and a pinch of sugar, salt, pepper. Pour in 1 cup of water, simmer under the lid for 15 minutes.

3
Done

Pour tomato sauce over the beans, cover the baking dish with foil and pop in the oven preheated to 340 °F for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for another half hour. Check if the beans are cooked. If the liquid has evaporated, but beans are not fully ready, add a little hot water and continue to bake.

Serve baked white beans with fresh vegetable salad and feta cheese. We also recommend adding thin slices of smoked sausage to the dish. Bon appétit!

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
