The Best Cooked Beans

  • This time, I made different beans than the other recipes I have without the addition of tomatoes, with a sprinkling of flour and garlic. You can eat beans prepared like this as a soup or add some pasta along with a good cabbage salad. It's easy to prepare because you'll be using a blender, so no crying while chopping onions :) to follow this wonderful recipe, the beans are phenomenal. Follow recipe.

The Best Cooked Beans
  1. Pre-soak the beans in water and eave them to stand until tomorrow.

  2. Throw out the water in which the beans were left, rinse under a cold stream and pour new water.

  3. Cook the beans — As soon as it boils, leave the beans to cook for another 10 minutes, then remove from the heat, throw away the water and rinse the beans again under a stream of cold water and set aside.

  4. While the beans are cooking, prepare the vegetables as described above.

  5. In a little oil in a deeper and larger pot, put the blended onion, stew for about 20 minutes, until it softens, add 1 teaspoon of Vegeta dry spice, cover the pot and stir occasionally.

  6. Do not add water, there is no need, cook on slightly moderate heat covered.

  7. After that, add the prepared: celery, parsnip and paprika, sausages, dry meat. Immediately after adding the spices, add cumin, hot pepper, bay leaf, and a little pepper, stir well and cover. Cook and stir occasionally for the next 40 minutes. The vegetables need to soften nicely.

  8. During this time, pour 500 ml of water into a small pot, put the beef cube for the broth. Cook until it boils, then turn off the heat.

  9. When the broth has boiled, pour half the broth to the beans, stir well and cover. After 20 minutes cooking, add the rest of the broth and pinch of baking soda, stir well. Cook for about 30 minutes.

  10. During cooking, add water as you need. Always make sure there is a little more liquid, because when you make a white spray it will be a little thicker.

  11. Pour the butter into a small pan and heat it on a slightly moderate heat. When the butter starts to sizzle, add the flour and stir quickly, after a minute add the chopped garlic, stir again then add the white sprinkles to the beans. Buon appetito!


  • For this kind of cooking, you will need a blender, so everything will be faster and easier for you.

  • If you are frying a hot pepper, put very little olive oil, press the pepper with a fork on both sides until it takes on color, and prick it during roasting. When it is ready, pour a little olive oil over it, add chopped white onion on top of the pepper and serve.

  • This recipe is made according to my taste, but since we are all a little different and don't like the same things, you can combine without hot pepper, instead of fried chili pepper you can combine regular roasted peppers. I like spicy things in general because it seems to be good for my health. If you like it less spicy, remove the seeds from the hot pepper and only then fry in very little oil.

  • If you like more soupy beans, do not add flour and butter as a sauce, and put the garlic at the beginning with the meat to stew.

  • In this recipe, there is no addition of peeled tomatoes or red ground pepper allspice.

  • I have didn't salt these beans, because there is already a lot of salt in the dry meat and sausage, as well as in the soup cube.

  • During cooking, I added very little baking soda and stirred, because it will soften the beans so quickly.

  • Add water gradually, depending on how thick you like the beans. For example, I used a larger pot of 7 liters. When the beans were ready, you will see in the picture that the liquid did not reach the top, but one handful less. The beans are neither runny nor too thick. I do it all by eye.

  • I have used a medium pot for the first cooking of the beans, so this cooking will go much faster because you don't have to pour a lot of water and wait. Just enough to cover the beans.

  • As an additional side dish, you don't have to do it, I cooked macaroni separately, I never add it into the beans, because then the beans become gooey. So cook as much as you need for the day and that's it. You can also have boiled potatoes if you like. I chose pasta because I live here in Italy and my husband love it!
