Sooo many people ask us: ‘What’s your favourite country?’

(Do you guys know how tough that is to answer?? 😛 )

Seriously though, thirty countries down and the decision only becomes harder.

Jani Me Fasule – Albanian White Bean Soup

A bowl full of Albanian comfort food, this one pot Jani Me Fasule (Albanian White Bean Soup) packs a huge flavour punch from a ridiculously small ingredients list. Perfect for a Sunday lunch with friends, this light yet filling meal can also be frozen for a delicious mid-week meal in minutes.

Fasule Bean Soup - a light yet filling lunch or dinner that tastes even better the next day.

Albania is not the easiest country in the world to get to, but once you’re there it’s completely worth the effort. Spend a day wandering the streets of Tirana, Albania’s capital, and you’ll discover a contrasting city full of cosy restaurants and coffee shops packed full of people, tucked away within the communist-era buildings.  

The contrasts are not just skin deep. Delve into Albanian cuisine and you’ll find hints of flavour from across the Mediterranean; Italian spices such as oregano blend almost seamlessly with black pepper and paprika from Turkey.

There’s so much flavour, it’s unbelievable how simple it is to prepare traditional Albanian cuisine such as this rich and hearty Jani Me Fasule recipe – aka Albanian White Bean Soup. 

Gleefully escaping the summer’s heat into our host Eriona’s cool apartment we thought the last thing we could possibly eat would be soup. One mouthful was enough to tell us just how wrong we were!
