Red bean stew

Red bean stew

The beans are left in the water for 24 hours, in the meantime taking care to throw away the water and rinse the beans three times.

We boil the beans for about 2 and a half hours, 3 and during this interval we change the water five times and each time we rinse the beans. Do not be afraid that it will not keep its taste (many people tend to do this), it will remain intact and digestion will be easy.

Near the end of cooking, prepare the vegetable sauce for the beans.

I boiled the beans in Zepter and the cooking time was shortened.

I prepared the vegetable sauce as follows:

I put in a saucepan, the olive oil and two or three tablespoons of water and then I added in turn, chopped onion, sliced ​​pepper, grated celery then half a grated carrot and the other half cut into rounds. I added the grated tomato, tomato paste and salt to taste. I left it on low heat for ten minutes (I also put it in Zepter).

In the last water in which the beans boil, add the marjoram, cumin, bay leaf and paprika. When the beans are cooked about 90% (so almost cooked), add the sauce and then adjust the final taste by adding salt and pepper (taste until we like), or other spices to personal taste (possibly if we want a more sour note a little more tomato paste , if we want it to be sweet and sour we can put a spoonful of sugar (brown or molasses).

It is a simple food, but with a very good taste!



Red beans with Bucovina sausages

It takes some time to prepare bean dishes. Does the fact that you lost a few good hours keeping the pan without boiling water bring you anything other than the satisfaction of doing it yourself? Possibly a higher utility bill. I also said it on other occasions: as long as you cook 2 to 4 servings of food, it is much more advantageous to use canned beans. You don't have to use the brand in the pictures. It is quite expensive, but the quality also corresponds to the price paid. Given the long shelf life, you do well to buy it with the bass.

What do you need?

  • 1 large can (800 g) of red beans
  • 1 Bucovina sausage (240 g)
  • 100 g pork breast (smoked, yes, better smoked)
  • 2 tomatoes (if you don't like rubber tomatoes sold in the off-season, it's better to put 2-3 tablespoons of concentrated tomato paste or ½ canned tomatoes in cubes)
  • 1 bunch of green onions (no one is upset if you don't have green go the other colors of the traffic light go: yellow or red)
  • 1 chilli powder (if you like tex-mex food, you can also put half a teaspoon)
  • salt and pepper & # 8211 to taste.

How do you proceed?

  • Cut the pork breast into small pieces and brown it in a non-stick pan without oil
  • Remove the pieces of browned breast and keep them, because you will surely need them (however, after they have cooled down a bit, one or two pieces only prepare the way down the throat well for a palinca thimble)
  • In the fat collected in the pan brown the pieces of sausage previously notched, to penetrate well
  • While the sausage is browning, cut the tomatoes into small cubes and the green onions into slices
  • In the fat left by the breast and sausage, fry the green onion until it softens
  • When it starts to brown, turn off with the tomatoes and add the chilli powder, then stir in the pan for another 3-4 minutes (the fire should be small now)
  • It's time to put the beans on the fire and open a parenthesis here.

When I cook with canned beans I always use canned juice (except for salads, obviously). Many connoisseurs say that all the preservatives are concentrated in the liquid in the box, all the "E's" which - isn't it? - They are very bad because they are not good. I let the connoisseurs know that the grains had time to extract from the liquid as many E's as they wanted, to which they would not let go no matter how much they were washed and rinsed by those connoisseurs. I closed the parenthesis.

  • Boil over low heat, covered with a lid, for 7 to 20 minutes, depending on how thick you want the beans to remain.
  • Finally, toss in the pan the remaining pieces of pork breast (if your brandy has not consumed them) and season with salt and pepper.

Now is the time to take care of the pickles and the red and dry Merlot that should be left and right of the Bucovina sausages garnished with low beans (more or less).

Have fun and see you healthy again!


  • the leaves of a lettuce,
  • a bunch of green onions,
  • 2-3 suitable tomatoes,
  • 200 g of boiled red beans (I used red beans, Bonduelle brand), to taste,
  • 1-2 tablespoons of olive or sunflower seed oil (and flax or sesame seed oil is very good in salads, if you wish),
  • a bunch of green parsley.

Lettuce leaves, green onions and parsley leaves, washed well and drained of water, cut and put in a large bowl. Then add all the other ingredients, mix and taste. If it is suitable for salt, the salad with red beans can be eaten as such or as a garnish for steaks and dishes from rice, potatoes or other vegetables.


Red lentil food recipe

Ingredients for 8 servings of red lentils:

  • 500g red lentils
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 capsicums
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 can of tomatoes without skin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • oil, salt, pepper

How do we make red lentil food?

1. As I wrote, soak the lentils in cold water for a few hours, preferably the night before. Floating grains are removed (same as beans)

2. Chop the onion and heat it in oil, in a larger pan (be careful I cooked for a battalion). Add the peeled carrot and put on a small grater, chopped garlic and diced pepper. Let it fry well then add the strained lentils. We also add diced tomatoes together with the canned juice (you can use fresh tomatoes if it is the season).

Mix well and add about 300ml of water, salt, coriander and peppercorns.

Let it simmer and, if necessary, add more water. After 20 minutes, do not leave the stove as there is a good chance that it will stick to the bottom of the pan and as such you should always stir.

Taste and if necessary season with salt and pepper. Serve as such or with various dishes of pork, chicken or beef.

We ate with sausages and sauerkraut, you don't have to do like us :)
