Kali orexi

500g gigantes beans (17 ounces)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 small clove of garlic
1 large onion chopped
4–5 tbsps parsley, chopped
1/2 tbsp celery, chopped
1/2 cup of hot water
400g (14 ounces) tinned chopped tomatoes or 600g (21 ounces) ripped fresh tomatoes, grated
1 tsp oregano
salt and ground pepper

Soak the gigantes beans overnight into plenty of water. The next day drain them into a colander and rinse with plenty of water.
Place the gigantes in a large pan with cold water, enough to cover them, add a pinch of sea salt and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for 45 minutes, until tender but not cooked. Drain them and set aside.
In a large baking pan add the olive oil, the onions, the garlic and bake at 180C, until softened (approx. 15 minutes).Turn the baking pan out of the oven. Add the gigantes beans (drained), the celery, the parsley, ½ cup of hot water and season with salt and pepper. Put back in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Turn the baking tray out of the oven, blend the gigantes beans lightly with a wooden spoon and pour in the grated tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, add a pinch of oregano and bake the gigantes further for 50-60 minutes at 180C, until the beans are soft and tender and the sauce thickens
