Fasolada Greek Navy Bean Soup-Mediterranean Diet

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.  


1 pound of uncooked navy beans (You can also use white kidney beans, lima beans or butter beans.)

2 carrots roughly cut

1 medium onion roughly cut

3 celery stalks sliced including the leaves

3 cloves of garlic


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)


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, 



I'm a Midwesterner who explores the world via the Internet, books, and movies. I share what I learn whether its beauty tips, health advice, recipes or literature. I'd call this blog a melting pot. I named it Barbie's Bookmarks because I love literature, and I love documenting things I find important in my life.. big and small. Thus, these are my life's bookmarks. I look forward to sharing them with you and learning about your bookmarks as well.
