Fasolada is a traditional Greek meal. The ingredients are cheap and feed a lot of people. Fasolada is so popular that it’s called the national dish of Greece.

2 carrots roughly cut

1 medium onion roughly cut

3 celery stalks sliced including the leaves

3 cloves of garlic

parsley

1 cup of tomato sauce or 2 tablespoons of tomato paste

1 10 oz can of diced tomatoes

1/2 cup of olive oil 

4-5 cups of vegetable broth (or use water and veggie bouillon cubes to taste)

Celtic sea salt

Ground pepper

Turmeric (for health benefits)

Parmesan cheese (optional topping)

Directions:

Put all the ingredients in the slow cooker and let it cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.

You can serve the Fasolada with some parmesan cheese on top or add a side salad. It doesn’t get any easier than this.

Stay blessed,
