Georgian lobio – beans – a historical dish that only poor people ate for lunch, as it consisted of the cheapest products and ingredients available to everyone. In the villages, it was served in a large bowl along with gomi corn porridge, which was placed directly on a carefully cleaned wooden table.
Each member of the family took the porridge for themselves, topped it with a piece of suluguni and scooped up lobio (beans) with a large spoon. Such a dinner provided a feeling of satiety for a long time, which was actually required of him.
