Fasolia Plaki (Greek Baked Beans)

1 1/2 c Great Northern, dried; or navy or other beans, soaked overnight and drained
1/4 c Oil
2 Onion; chopped
1 cl Garlic; chopped
11 c Pureed tomato
2 tb Vinegar
3 tb Honey
1 Bay leaf
2 Cloves, whole
1/4 c Kefalortir; or Parmesan cheese


Note: Kefalortir is a hard goat cheese, similar to parmesan.

Place the beans in a large pot, cover with water, cover the pot, and cook the beans for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until they are tender. Drain the beans.

Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the onions until they are soft. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the cheese, plus 2 cups of water, and bring them to a boil to make a sauce.

When the beans are cooked, drain them. Mix the sauce with the beans and pour the mixture into a shallow baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes in a preheated 375 degree (F) oven. Sprinkle the top with cheese and serve.:
