I’m pretty sure every country has their own version of Chili. and the Lebanese are no different. Fasoolia is a really simple kidney bean dish to make and it’s absolutely delicious. It’s part of my family’s regular Lebanese dish rotation and makes it on our table at least once a month. I personally love it with a side of cabbage-tomato salad, drizzled with a simple dressing of salt, lemon juice, oil and vinegar. It compliments the Fasoolia very nicely. This time I made it with Kale Salad and while the salad itself was delicious, my taste buds are accustomed to eating Fasoolia with Cabbage Salad.

Beans beans they’re good for your heart! The more you eat the more you…..

Don’t forget to add the cumin! It’ll reduce feelings flatulence and bloating often associated with eating kidney beans.

Hope you enjoy!
