Notes

Fasolada comes from Greece and Cypriot soup of dry white beans, olive oil, and vegetables. It is sometimes called the national food of the Greeks. It originated in ancient Greece, where a sort of stew of beans, vegetables, and grains, with no meat, was used as food and sacrifice to Greek God Apollo.
