Recipe Ingredients for Stewed beans with potatoes and olives

6 new potatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, white
1 tsp garlic
2 tbsp oregano, fresh
2 tbsp white wine
2 cups tomatoes, stewed
1/2 cup chickpeas, dried
3/4 cup navy beans, dried
8 olives, black
2 tsp capers
1/3 cup feta cheese

Recipe Directions for Stewed beans with potatoes and olives

  1. Soak and cook the beans and chickpeas (will yield about 1 1/2 cups each).

  2. In a large pot bring enough water to cover the potatoes to a boil. Add the potatoes and gently simmer until they're just cooked through, about 10 minutes. Lift the potatoes out with a slotted spoon and let them cool.

  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When it's hot, add teh onions, garlic and oregano. Reduce the heat to medium and saute, stirring often, until teh onions are soft and limp, about 8 minutes. Add the wine and stir until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 4 minutes.

  4. Stir in the tomatoes and cook, stirring often, until they start to thicken, about 5 minutes. Add teh chickpeas, navy beans, olives and capers. Cut the potatoes into quarters and add them too. Cover and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is very thick, about 10 minutes. Stir in the feta and season with salt and pepper.
