Based on 8-12 servings per recipe.

  • 6-8 ounces Italian parsley (flat-leafed)
  • 6-8 ounces curly parsley
  • 4-6 ounces dill
  • 1 large lemon
  • 2 cups low salt homemade chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 6 cups onions, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 4 cups pinto beans
  • to taste pepper


  1. Wash and dry the parsley and dill.
  2. Remove any thick stems and chop into 1/2 – 1 inch pieces; set aside.
  3. Halve the lemon and squeeze the juice; set aside.
  4. Put the halved lemon and broth in a small saucepan.
  5. Bring the broth to a boil, lower heat, and simmer, covered.
  6. In a large saucepan, heat the butter and oil and cook the onions until wilted and golden.
  7. Stir in the curry powder, parsley, and dill.
  8. Add the broth and lemon halves.
  9. Cook slowly to tenderize the parsley and slightly reduce the broth. (If you cover the pan, the parsley loses some of its brilliant color.)

  12. Season with salt and pepper.
