History & Benefits:
Fasolada is a traditional Greek dish, sometimes known as the national dish of Greece. The beauty of this dish is that you can add more or less of anything to suit your taste. It is best served with some type of bread to soak up all the liquid!
Olive oil is a vital ingredient, a primary heart healthy food in the mediterranean diet. Olive oil retains all of its previous vitamins and minerals when consumed raw, which is why we add olive oil at the end of cooking. Be sure to use extra virgin olive oil, if possible. This will lift the flavour and help the soup get thick and creamy.
