The beans are picked from any impurities, washed in a few waters and left to soak overnight.
Put 2-3 liters of boiling water. When the water has started to boil, pour it over the beans drained from the water in which it stayed overnight. Bring to the boil for 5 minutes after it starts to boil. Remove the formed foam. Meanwhile, boil another 2-3 liters of water. Drain the beans from the water in which it boiled and add a new one.
Hot water must always be added so as not to stop the boiling process. We proceed as in the first round and we prepare for the third round;) Now we will boil water again for the fourth and last round. The last round would be preferable to do in a pressure cooker to halve the cooking time. After boiling for almost an hour in the pressure cooker, our beans are definitely quite cooked.
While the beans are boiling, we take care of the onions. Onions are cleaned, washed and finely chopped. Mix with a pinch of salt (to soften) and season to taste with thyme, marjoram or oregano. Put in a yena tray and sprinkle with olive oil (4-5 tablespoons). Cover with a lid or aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes on high heat. Then remove the lid or foil, add the finely chopped baked kapia peppers and mix well. Put back in the oven for another 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. If the beans have boiled in the meantime, drain the water - but keep 1 cup of juice. Pass the beans and depending on the desired consistency, add the juice in which it boiled. Add crushed garlic to taste, salt and olive oil. Mix well or rather beat it because it's just called beaten beans;) Put the beaten beans in a bowl. Spread the cooked onion on top of the whole surface. Serve with baked pepper salad or pickles.
I like few meatless dishes as much as beaten beans. I rarely do it, because when I have it in front of me I can't help myself - and that onion fried with paprika, on top, is one of my vices. But if we are still during Lent, I thought I could pamper myself once more :)

But if we're still in Lent, I thought I could pamper myself once more. But this time I played a little spice - as an experiment.
- 400 grams of boiled white beans (I used canned beans)
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1 half teaspoon cumin
- 1 half teaspoon of coriander seeds
- 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
- 1 half teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1 onion
- 3-4 tablespoons of sunflower oil + 1 tablespoon of frying oil
I drained the canned beans
I put the blender in it, until it became a paste. Then I mixed it with the crushed garlic and a mixture of cumin, coriander, mustard seeds and nutmeg - also ground.
I mixed them well, pouring 3-4 tablespoons of oil over them all while mixing them. Then I cut the fish onion and put it to fry in a tablespoon of oil.
When it softened, I put the 2 tablespoons of paprika over it.
Finally, I put the onion over the beans, along with the fried oil. Yes, I know, not very healthy, but as I rarely do, it's worth it :)
500 grams of dried beans
4 tablespoons sunflower oil
half a clove of garlic
2 tablespoons broth
The beans are soaked in lukewarm water for a few hours before cooking. It would be best to let it soak overnight. The next day it boils very well in 2-3 waters. (Be careful, every time the water must be warm, not cold!).
In the last water, let it simmer for as long as it needs to boil. For a special taste, you can add carrot slices, peppercorns and 2-3 bay leaves. The pepper and bay leaves will be removed later, when the beans are passed.

How do we make the best beaten bean recipe?
For this recipe of beans beaten with hardened onions I used an electric pressure cooker One Pot from Tefal. I just love this pot. First of all, because with it you can make a lot of different dishes. Then because it has 25 different preset programs. In addition, I like it because it does not heat the kitchen and does not "whistle", as do classic pressure cookers. I started by boiling beans with vegetables, bay leaves and dried thyme. Grandma and Mom always put bay leaves and thyme on beans and so do I. In the miracle pot, the beans were ready in just 30 minutes. The beans boiled so well that I could simply care for them with a fork.
Because the One Pot pot from Tefal has a lot of programs, I also used it for the onion cooked from the recipe of beans beaten with onion. The onion was hardened under pressure, it softened very well without frying. I only added the mashed tomatoes and the onion was ready. It turned out so good and sweet that I could have simply eaten it bread. I served it in the classic way, putting the beaten beans on a plate and the onion on top of it. I swear it was the best bean I made and all my family were delighted with its special taste. Watch the video recipe to see the secret ingredient I use, and for another equally tasty traditional recipe, try duck on baked cabbage.
