White bean cream soup with bacon and garlic

Until a few years ago, when I was still not playing with the ingredients so much, and my imagination was manifested in other parts than in the kitchen, beans had a simple purpose in this world. I mean, what I had learned from my mother at home: bean soup, beaten beans, stew or beans with ciolan.

But only with a little creativity can you transform the poor man's food into a way worthy even of some pretentious guests: bean cream soup with bacon "croutons". The ingredients do not differ much, as you probably guessed, from those needed for a bean with bacon or ribs. But the end result is completely different.

I used white, fat beans (butter beans, as the English call it) that I left to soak overnight, then I boiled it for about two and a half hours, changing the water twice. Half an hour before stopping the fire, I put in the pot and vegetables: an onion, a carrot, half a small celery, a parsnip. And 5 minutes before taking the pot off the heat I put plenty of olive oil, about 60-70 ml, and salt.

I then let the boiled beans and vegetables take on their flavors and befriend the olive oil. After half an hour, I put the contents in the blender and beans, and vegetables, and soup (actually, I did this in about three tranches) and I passed everything.

Because the beans have that hard shell and because that shell doesn't pass completely, it's imperative to strain the soup through a fairly thick sieve after mixing it in a blender, because that's the only way to get a fine cream.

Season the cream soup with garlic slices, well-browned bacon in the pan and dried or green rosemary, freshly ground pepper.


How do we crush and pass the rubbed, beaten beans?

There used to be no food processors and the beans were crushed with a fork or a mashed potato utensil. Then the composition was thinned a little with a little juice left over from boiling and the paste was passed through a fine sieve or through the potato press (which we also use for dumplings). The idea is to get rid of the shells and to obtain a paste as fine and silky as possible.

Nowadays we also go for shortcuts. I put the beans together with 2 tablespoons of juice (better put less at the beginning and add more later) in the processor bowl with knives (or in a blender) and I mixed them for a few seconds. Then I passed the paste through a fine sieve and obtained a fine, frothy cream.

How do we season the beaten, rubbed beans?

The bean paste obtained can be further diluted with a little juice, thus adapting its consistency. I added salt and pepper and 3 cloves of finely crushed garlic through the press. What a flour flavor !!

Bean stew & fasting recipe

Bean stew & # 8211 traditional fasting recipe. Cheap and simple bean meal with a natural flavor. How do we make bean stew? Bean stew recipe, list of ingredients and how to prepare.

Bean stew is one of the most popular dishes in Romania, it is a cheap and very tasty dish in its simplicity.

My mother often cooked this food, but for her, the biggest challenge was boiling the beans. You never knew which beans you came across, nor was the offer very diverse and there were a few times when it hit some beans that were not cooked even after three hours, other times there were also beans whose boiling time it was less than an hour. With such experiences, cooking the bean stew can become a real extreme adventure, giving strong emotions.

To be easy to cook, the beans must be soaked for about 12 hours beforehand. The water added over the beans must exceed their level by about 6 cm because the grains will hydrate, increase in volume and if they do not have enough water, they will not soften enough. Also, in the pot in which we will boil the grains there should be enough water, about 7 cm. above the grain level, otherwise the beans will not boil well.

Eating beans can sometimes be indigestible due to both the fact that the grains have not been well hydrated and not boiled enough but also the existence in the grain shell of cellulose, a component of plant cell walls but which man does not have the organic capacity to when digested. Therefore, to prevent indigestion problems we will take care to hydrate the berries well and boil them enough.

The recipe below is by Silvia Jurcovan, with small changes here and there, definitely not in essential parts but in taste.


Method of preparation

Step 1: The beans are picked and soaked in the evening in cold water. The next day it is washed in some water and boiled with warm water. After the first and second boiling, change the water, fill the bowl again with hot water and boil the beans until it is almost ready.

Step 2: Add salt, thyme, bay leaves, peppercorns, onions, carrots, parsley, raw oil and continue cooking until the beans are ready, without the grain breaking, but remaining whole and not much juice . When the beans are almost cooked, add the broth.

Step 3: Beans are served as you like: with fried onions (stew), with raw oil, dill or finely chopped green parsley or put through a mincer and prepare bean puree (beaten beans).


Nothing is tastier and more beautiful than a plate with a dish that not only looks very good but also has a story, we say, fascinating. Bonduelle Romania challenged us to cook and tell stories, which is exactly what makes us most happy. Chef Vasile Nicolae and journalist Cosmin Dragomir present you a series of recipes in the DNA of which history and good taste revolve.

We find in Iuliu A. Zane in the monumental collection of Romanian proverbs the saying “ten kinds of dishes / also chewed beans” and the anonymous thinker is very right. Beans, along with lentils (disappeared from the usual culinary habit), beans (disappeared even from the gardens), cabbage (more specific to Transylvania) and roots were the basis of peasant dishes, especially in the cold season and many fasting days of a nation with strong faith in God. Food for the poor, accompanied by an onion soaked in coarse salt and a lump of cold polenta, beans seem to enter their rights only in 2000, rebranded by ProTv as a traditional food on December 1 - National Day and anniversary for the television station.

We have chosen for today to remake and improve an interwar recipe with beans for two clear reasons:
In the notebook for the household, second class from 1932-1933, Brăila, we found a recipe that caught our eye.
Bean cream soup is a fairly uncooked dish in our kitchens and shows us, once again, how versatile this ingredient is.

Ingredient:
1 piece of onion
1 carrot
1 piece of celery
1 clove of garlic
Hardening oil
800 g white beans in a Bonduelle box
200 g red beans in a Bonduelle box
100 g bagged spinach frozen sheet by sheet from Bondulle
Onion flakes
Salt, pepper, paprika, thyme
Optional: milk and butter for dairy vegetarians or sweet days.

Instructions:
Chop the vegetables, fry in oil, add a little more water to boil them a little. Add the white beans with the canned juice. They boil. At the end, add the spinach and blend. If it does not have the consistency of a cream soup, you can thin it with heated milk (optionally) or red bean juice. (Optionally heat the butter in a saucepan and add it at the end of the composition).
Grease the bread slices with a little oil, flavor them, and fry them in the pan.
The red beans dry well. Heat a little oil in a pan, add the beans, season with salt, pepper and thyme and leave for a while until browned.
It is mounted as in the photo, using for flavoring the beans flavored with red beans, onion flakes and paprika.

We recommend a Fetească Neagră rose from Crama Histria.
