Recipe courtesy of our nutritionist, Mary Hunt, MS, RDN. Mary grew up in a home with a wonderful Armenian grandmother who loved to cook, and this is a family favorite!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 sweet onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 cup diced carrots: 2 carrots, peeled and diced or about 1 cup baby carrots
1 stalk celery, diced (about ½ cup)
1 large tomato, diced (about 1¼ cup) or 1 cup canned tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 (15-ounce) cans white beans, such as cannellini (white kidney) beans or Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon fresh dill (or 1 teaspoon dried dill)
¼ cup fresh parsley, or cilantro, diced
¼ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Serve cold or even warmed. I think it tastes even better the second day!
Traditional Plaki recipes are prepared with a lot more olive oil. Adding fresh herbs and garlic can add a lot of flavor without a lot of extra fat and calories (for those of us who are trying to be mindful of them). 🙂
Makes approximately 9 servings.
