I was at a friend's house the other day and she had a pot simmering that smelled so good! When I asked her for the recipe, she laughed, because it was a recipe she had copied from my book. I made it the next day, and thought I'd pass it on.
2 cups dried Great Northern beans
8 cups stock or water
1-2 cups leftover meat, cut in small pieces
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T oil or butter
3 tomatoes, chopped
2 onions, chopped
a little parsley
Soak beans overnight; drain. Add stock or water and simmer about one hour, or until half-cooked. Add meat, oregano, salt and 1 clove garlic. Continue cooking 1 to 2 hours, until flavors blend and beans are tender.
Heat oil in frying pan. Add remaining clove of garlic, tomatoes, onions and parsley. Saute until onion is soft. Add 1/3 of the bean mixture and mash together. Return mixture to bean pot.
Serve over rice. Traditionally this is served in Latin America with sliced oranges and cooked greens. Yum!
