Giant beans (or gigantes), are one of the most traditional Greek ingredients. They are the basis for many iconic and absolutely delicious Greek dishes. Mixed with tomato sauce and baked in the oven, giant beans create a dish so versatile that can work for lunch, dinner, as a side dish, shared meze, or even with scrambled eggs. Nutritious, super filling and very tasty, especially with a chunk of feta on the side. Giant beans are also the main ingredient for the traditional fasolada soup, and can form part of your grain bowl or stew.
