Drain and wash the beans, put in a sauce pan with
enough water to cover the beans generously. Boil, then lower the
heat & cover and simmer for 2 hours, or till the beans are
well cooked. Mash the beans with a potato masher, and add the
rest of the ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning. Put in a
serving dish with chopped parsley and olive oil on top. Serve
warm with raddish spring onions and pitta bread.
