The secret of success is in using fresh beans. If you really cannot get hold of any, the dried variety will have to do, but the flavour won’t be quite the same. Always bring the beans to a full boil after soaking them. Wash and drain them, then use as fresh. The soup does not necessarily contain onion but it is needed for flavouring dried beans.
