Step by step method

  • Step 1

    Pour the beans with cold water and put on fire. Cook until tender, after boiling for 30-40 minutes. How to check readiness? Try a few beans. If they are soft, then they are ready.

  • Step 2

    In the meantime, let's take care of vegetables - peel the onion and cut into cubes or half rings. Carrots are also cleaned and three on a large track. For lovers of spicy, you can add pepper and garlic to the vegetable mixture.

  • Step 3

    Saute vegetables in vegetable oil until soft. Be careful not to burn the onion.

  • Step 4

    When the beans are ready, drain the water from them and put them in the frying pan. If using tomato paste, dilute it with bean broth. It will taste much better.

  • Step 5

    Add tomato juice and all spices. Don't ignore cinnamon and cloves. It is in this dish that they harmoniously fit into the overall picture of tastes. Stew the beans in the tomato for 15 minutes.

  • Step 6

    As you cook, the liquid in the pan will boil away, if you want more gravy, add juice or water to the dish.

Tips & variations

  • What kind of beans to take for the dish? White or colored, it doesn't matter. Although, many argue that colored beans have a more pleasant taste.

  • Pay attention to the beans themselves - they should be even, not wrinkled and without holes. If black dots are found on the surface, then most likely a bug has wound up inside. When buying a product in a store or bazaar, be sure to inspect the appearance.

  • If you like spicy food, add a little red pepper, chili, paprika, horseradish to the stew.

  • Mushrooms give a special taste and richness to the dish. It goes well with white species, boletus, champignons.

  • If the hostess has little time, but you want to stew beans with vegetables, you can use a canned product. It is better to purchase several cans in advance and keep them for such an occasion.

  • If according to the recipe you need to add tomatoes to the dish, and winter tomatoes are completely tasteless, then you should replace them with tomato paste diluted in water or juice. This will give the dish juiciness and sourness.

  • When boiling beans, water should not be allowed to boil, if it boils, then the beans will crack and lose their appearance.
