Fasolada, fasoulada or sometimes Fasolia meaning beans. Greek words (Greek: φασολάδα, φασουλάδα or φασολια, sometimes written fassolada or fassoulada) is a Greek and Cypriot soup of dry white beans, olive oil, and vegetables as peppers, sometimes called the "national food of the Greeks".
Fasolada is made by simmering beans with tomatoes and other vegetables such as carrots, onion, parsley, celery, and bay leaf. Lima beans are sometimes used instead of white beans. Recipes vary considerably.
It is often enriched with olive oil either in the kitchen or on the table.
