  • 2 cups dry white beans
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 cups sun dried tomatoes, halved and seeds removed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tbsp mint
  • 1 bay leaf


Add onions, beans and the bay leaf to a large pot with water about 1 inch over the beans. Cook on medium-high heat for about 2 hours or until soft and creamy. Stir occasionally. The beans and onions should be a stew-like consistency.

Pre-heat oven to 400F.

In a sauté pan, heat oil. Once hot, add garlic, paprika, mint, crushed red pepper and cumin. Sauté for one or two minutes, then add mixture to beans. Add sun-dried tomatoes to beans.

In a clay pot, bake the bean mixture in the oven at 400F for 30 minutes or until thick. Let beans cool and serve with pita bread, or sourdough.
