Louvia (Black-Eyed Bean Stew)

Having a bag of dried black-eyed beans in the cupboard, I thought I'd make use of some of them, and ended up making this dish. I would say it is more of a side dish or something to have in addition to something else, perhaps add some in your tortilla?
It's almost like baked beans except the tomato-y-ness is changed for garlic and onions. Apparently it was posted in an Egyptian magazine, pretty neat!

(Serves 5, 475 calories each - as a main)

PS. I didn't add enough water! Ooops

About 300 g dry black-eyes beans, soak overnight in salted water
Water
2 onions, chopped
5 garlic cloves, finely sliced
1 cup fresh dill, chopped
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 tomatoes, diced
2 tbsp tomato purée
4 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste

- The following day after the beans have soaked overnight, boil up some water and cook them for about 45 minutes.

- In another pot, slightly brown the onion for 2-3 minutes, then add garlic, tomatoes, purée and herbs. Simmer on medium heat for about 30 minutes, adding a tiny bit of water.

- Stir the beans in with the onion mix, add more water and simmer for about 15 minutes - and you're done!
