Gigantes Plaki is a classic Greek dish comprising butter beans cooked in a delicious homemade tomato sauce. This dish takes time – but it's so worth it! The sauce is made using chopped tinned tomatoes, onions, garlic and all manner of delicious spices. It is then baked in the oven for an hour with the beans. This intensifies the individual flavours.
