    Elmotoo's Note:

    A basic, homey, simple soup. According to food historians, fassolatha (pronounced fah-so-LAH-thah) has been around since ancient Greek times. It is the national dish of Greece, representing the best of the Greek way of cooking: legumes, vegetables, herbs, and olive oil. Serving suggestions: Serve Fassolatha with a side of feta cheese sprinkled with pepper and oregano and doused in olive oil, crusty bread, black olives, and salty dishes like anchovies, smoked herring, or others of your choice.

      I think there is something wrong with this recipe also noted by several other reviews. I expect the white beans are meant to be soaked 12 hours and not 24, as like others, my beans broke apart in the specified cooking time. I don't think the cooking time is off. Also the amount of pepper is too much and I don't think that is our preference. So add to taste. I followed the recipe exactly except did not serve it with chopped parsley. The taste was good but to peppery yet I used less freshly ground black pepper. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.

      A very nice and filling soup! I feel like I got a whole meal, served with Ritz crackers. Thanks! Made for Vegetarian Swap-March 2010.

      This version of fassolatha is absolutely delicious and far superior to another version that I tried a couple of years ago. I substituted chicken broth for half of the water and used two 19 oz. cans of white kidney beans to save time but otherwise made the recipe as written. I will definitely make this delicious soup again!
