Beaten Beans

The tastiest beaten beans recipe is high in protein, iron, and zinc. Beans are low in saturated fat, and sodium and contain no cholesterol at all. They occupy a leading place in the category of proteins of vegetable origin. I like to make beaten beans often as I enjoy a filling breakfast or even a healthy snack when I’m hungry and don’t have time to make anything else.

For extra vitamins, minerals, and delicious flavors, I also added a carrot, bell pepper, and onion to this recipe. They give an extra flavor to the classic bean recipe that only contains boiled beans and a few spices. I also really like the classic recipe and often feel the need to prepare it and enjoy authentic beaten beans. But the combination of flavors in the recipe presented below will make you think of the taste and flavors of your childhood.

Beaten Beans


Beaten Beans
200 g white beans
1 carrot
1 red pepper
1 medium onion
500 ml water
Onion and garlic sauce
1 onion and 5 garlic cloves
6-8 tablespoons of tomato sauce
50 ml oil
a pinch of salt and black pepper


Beaten beans

  1. Soak the beans in cold water overnight. The next day boils them, the water completely covering the beans.
  2. Clean and chop the carrot and red pepper and cook them in a little oil for 10 minutes on low heat.
  3. On top of the boiled vegetables, add 500 ml of water and the onion cut into 4 pieces (we only use this for taste). Boil the vegetables for 20 minutes, on high heat.
  4. Check that the beans were boiled, then drain the water they were cooked in and add the vegetable stock, removing only the 4 pieces of onion. Boil all the ingredients on low heat for another 15 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and drain the water into a bowl. You need to add water little by a little while blending the composition until you will get the desired composition.

Onion and garlic sauce

While the beans and vegetables are cooking together you can cook the onion and garlic sauce. Cook on low heat for 10 minutes, with onion, cut into small pieces and 3 cloves of garlic cut into slices. Add the tomato sauce, salt, black pepper, and the other two cloves of garlic pressed and cook on low heat for another 5 minutes.

Place the beaten beans in a bowl, add the onion and garlic sauce, and enjoy this delicious dish.

Because beans are an important protein source, I present you with an easy recipe for delicious bean soup.

Beaten beans made from several types of beans

I don’t make beaten beans from several types of beans at the same time because they require different cooking times. But I often buy different varieties because I discovered that although they are part of the same type of vegetable, they have different tastes and different nutrient content. Among the most known and used types of beans are:

  • black beans are slightly sweet and high in magnesium.
  • black-eye beans have small, rounder beans and are rich in folic acid.
  • red beans are an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • white beans are the most popular. It has a high potassium content.
  • Pinto beans – have brown beans and contain high amounts of fiber and protein.

Popular, especially in season, are bean pods. I used only the green and yellow ones in cooking, but I also saw a very large variety of pods.

Beans – a popular vegetable around the world

Probably only the cuisine of Antarctica does not cook with beans because otherwise, beans are popular all over the world. Each cuisine prides itself on its traditional dishes or techniques used to cook beans delights. From Mexican cuisine that delights us with many traditional dishes with beans to Oriental, Indian, Italian, Greek, and Spanish cuisine, they all delight us with delicacies that you can’t stop thinking about.

Of all the dishes I’ve tried with beans, the ones from Mexican cuisine seem the tastiest to me, and I love that they have many vegetarian and vegan dishes that are delicious. I love tacos, especially those that don’t lack the guacamole sauce that I also prepared in authentic style and it’s super creamy and delicious. I also really like the vegan version of chili con carne and I can’t wait to introduce it to you too.

Indians also have many traditional dishes with beans, vegan and vegetarian whose taste takes you through a multitude of well-known and lesser-known spices.

And in Romania there are many soups and dishes with beans and each region has its style and secrets for preparing these delicacies. If you end up in a traditional Romanian restaurant, confidently order bean soup inside bread. It is a sensational dish. I always choose to eat this delicious soup at Romanian restaurants.

The Italians, Greeks, and Spanish people also prepare some delicious dishes with beans that do not lack olive oil, tomato juice, a mixture of spices specific to each area, and even lemon juice. A flavor that is difficult to describe.
