Loubia Moroccan White Bean Stew Recipe

Loubia Moroccan White Bean Stew Recipe

Loubia is a traditional North African dish consisting of stewed white beans. This dish is very popular in Moroccan, Tunisian, Algerian, and Libyan homes, where the beans that have been simmered in a zesty tomato-based saure typically scooped up with homemade flatbread.

It is comfort food that can be served both as an appetizer, garnished with some coriander or parsley, and as a side dish – especially when used as an accompaniment to fried fish.

 

WHAT CHOICE OF BEANS CAN BE USED?

Dried Cannellini Beans: Pour the beans to a bowl and cover with water, soak overnight before draining and using. Stew for at least 1 hour, or until fully cooked, adding water to the pot if things start to dry out.

Canned Cannellini Beans: drain and rinse the beans before stewing for 30 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.

 

STORAGE AND REHEATING

Store loubia in a clean and dry container in the fridge for up to 5-6 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until warmed through
