Greek Bean Soup Preparation

Wash beans and soak overnight in cold water. The next day, in a soup kettle, bring the beans to a boil in the soaking water. Skim off the foam, then add the remaining ingredients, cover, and simmer gently until the beans are tender, about 3 hours. Serve hot. Note: Less frequently, the soup is pureed through a sieve. Also, you may add the herbs during the last hour or so of cooking, if you wish. From: The Food of Greece by Vilma Liacouras Chantiles. Avenel Books, New York.
