 1 cup Uncooked Medium White Beans
 1 Medium Red Bell Pepper, Seeded and Finely Chopped
 1 Medium Green Bell Pepper, Seeded and Finely Chopped
 1 Medium Onion, Minced in a Food Processor
 1 Garlic Clove, Thinly Sliced
 1 tsp Tomato Paste Diluted with 1⁄4 Cup Water
 1 tbsp Dried Oregano
 1 tsp Fine Sea Salt
 ¼ tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
 8 Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
 ¼ cup Hot Water

1

Place the beans in a medium bowl and cover with water by 2–3 inches
(5-7.5cm). Soak overnight or for 10 hours.

2

When ready to cook, drain and rinse the beans, and place them in a
large pot. Cover with at least 2 inches (5cm) of water to account for
expansion. Place the pot over high heat and bring to a boil, then reduce
the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 30 minutes or until the
beans are soft but not mushy. Remove from the heat and drain.

3

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). In a large bowl, combine the bell
peppers, onions, garlic, cooked beans, olive oil, tomato paste mixture,
oregano, sea salt, and black pepper. Toss gently to avoid breaking
the beans.

4

Transfer the mixture to a large casserole dish. Place the halved cherry
tomatoes on top and then add the hot water to the dish by pouring it
into a corner and tilting the dish so that the water spreads across the
surface. (Do not pour the water directly over the casserole as this will
wash off the olive oil.)

5

Cover the dish with foil and place in the oven to roast for about 1 hour
or until the peppers are soft, adding small amounts of hot water, 2
tablespoons at a time, if the beans appear to be drying out. After 1 hour,
remove the foil and roast for 10 more minutes.

6

Remove the dish from the oven and set aside to cool for 5 minutes
before serving. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
