Pasulj/white bean soup

28oz white kidney beans
4-5 onions
salt or Vegeta
1 tbsp paprika

Put beans in water, bring to a boil, then drain.
Dice an onion, mince garlic. Cut bacon into 1 inch strips.
Add beans, onions, garlic, bacon to cold water, bring to a boil again, then lower to simmer. Cook for 1.5 hrs, remove big bacon slices (and save).
Dice 3-4 onions. Fry in olive oil until golden. Add 2 tbsp flour and mix so it doesn't get chunky. Add oil if it's too dry. Add 1 tbsp paprika, mix well, and immediately put it in the big pot of simmering beans.
Add 1.5 tsp salt or Vegeta. Stir and remove from stove.
Take a cup of hot water and deglaze the frying pan, and pour it back into the pot.
Add the bacon pieces, removing fat first if you want, and serve.
