Combine scallions, parsley, shallots, and hot peppers to form a paste.

Heat oil over medium heat and add seasoning paste, beans, and scallions. Add water, parsley, and bring to boil.  Cover and simmer for 2 hours, or until beans are tender.  Blend beans and juice in an electric blender or force through a strainer.  Return sauce to low heat and season to taste.
