Giant beans with cabbage leaves


  1. Soak the beans overnight.
  2. Then boil them in salted water for one or more hour until they become soft.
  3. Strain the beans and keep two cups of the juice. You will need the juice to cook the beans in the oven.
  4. Rinse the cabbage leaves, strain them and then shred them.
  5. Afterwards sauté with one cup of olive oil until they soften.
  6. Finally add in a baking pan the beans and the cabbage and pour two cups of the juice you have preserved.
  7. Cook in 200 C until the juice is absorbed and the beans take a brown color.
