Fasoulia is a Lebanese dish made with white beans, beef, tomatoes, and spices. The dish is typically served with Lebanese rice, which is made with vermicelli, rice, and a few other simple ingredients.
To make Fasoulia with Lebanese rice, start by cooking white beans in a pot with beef, onions, and garlic until the beans are tender. Add canned tomatoes, tomato paste, and spices such as cumin, allspice, and cinnamon, and let the stew simmer until the flavors meld together.
For the Lebanese rice, start by toasting vermicelli noodles in butter until they are golden brown. Then add rice, water, and a bit of salt to the pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the rice cook until all the liquid has been absorbed.
Serve the Fasoulia hot with a side of the Lebanese rice. Garnish with parsley and lemon wedges for added flavor.
