How to make it
- Place beans in a bowl with enough water to cover by three inches and soak overnight.
- Heat oil in a large, heavy sauce pan. Saute onion, carrots, celery and garlic for five minutes over medium-high heat until onions are translucent. Drain and rinse beans and stir into vegetables.
- Stir in tomato paste and vinegar and cook, stirring, for two more minutes. Add enough stock or water to pan to cover the beans with 1-1/2 inches of liquid (about five cups). Stir in salt, bay leaves and fennel seeds. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes to one hour or until beans are tender.
- Remove bay leaves. Stir in shrimp and olives into beans and heat for about three minutes or until shrimp are cooked through. Stir in red pepper sauce.
- Place a slice of bread into each bowl and ladle stew over bread. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
