Cooking beans with vegetables in a slow cooker:
Step 1: prepare the beans.Before preparing such a dish, it is very important to soak the beans in plain water. To do this, put the main ingredient in a deep bowl and fill it with water so that it completely covers the beans. Leave the component aside in this state. for 8-10 hours. This must be done so that the beans absorb moisture, thereby softened and cooked faster. In addition to all this, sugar will dissolve in the water, which is not digested in the human body and can cause bloating, which will slow down the process of digesting food. In a word, soaking beans in water is very important for many reasons. And so this is best done the day before cooking, for example, all night. Attention: but you should not soak the beans for longer, as it can just turn sour and thereby ruin the dish. After that, drain the water from the bowl, and transfer the beans to the pan. Again, fill the ingredient with plain water and put the container on medium heat. After the liquid in the inventory boils, make a small fire and cook the beans for 1 hour After the allotted time, you must try the beans for the degree of readiness. To do this, use a tablespoon to get out of the pan 3-4 beans. And as they cool down, we immediately try them, each individually. If at least one of them is still solid, then it is necessary to extend the cooking time of the component for 15 minutes. Attention: lid the pan during cooking the beans do not need to be covered so that they do not change color, just as you do not need to mix the beans with a tablespoon. Important just monitor the water level in the tank and add cold liquid as needed. Then the beans cook faster and become soft.
Step 2: prepare the onion.Using a knife, peel the onion from the husk and then - rinse the ingredient under running water. Then, put the vegetable on a cutting board and, using the same sharp inventory, grind the component into small pieces. In fact, you can chop the onion the way you like it more. For example, squares, half rings or just small pieces. Shredded component is transferred to a free plate.
Step 3: prepare the carrots.Peel the carrots and after - thoroughly rinse under running water. We shift the vegetable onto a cutting board and chop it into pieces with a knife into any size and shape that you like. After that we transfer the chopped carrots to a clean plate.
Step 4: prepare bell peppers.First, rinse the bell pepper under running water. After that, using a knife, cut off the tail from the ingredient and clear it of seeds. Again, slightly wash the vegetable under running water and transfer it to a cutting board. First, cut the component into two halves, and then cut each part of the pepper lengthwise into strips. In order to get the squares, we cut the strips of pepper across into small pieces in size and immediately after that we transfer them to a free plate.
Step 5: prepare the tomatoes.We wash the tomatoes under running water and after that we transfer the ingredient to the cutting board. Using a knife, cut off the tail or the part where the tail was attached from the ingredient. Then cut the vegetable into two halves and cut each into small pieces. Shredded tomatoes are transferred to a clean plate.
Step 6: prepare beans with vegetables in a slow cooker.So, put the chopped vegetables in a slow cooker and add a small amount of vegetable oil. We turn on kitchen equipment in the "baking" mode and pass the ingredients for 20-30 minutes. immediately after that we open the lid of the multicooker and add boiled beans to vegetables. Switch the inventory mode to "stew" and continue to cook the dish for another 1 hour. after the allotted time, open the lid of the multicooker and salt and pepper beans with vegetables to taste. Everything, the dish is ready!
Step 7: serve beans with vegetables in a slow cooker.While the beans and vegetables in the multicooker are still hot, we serve the dish to the table in a special plate. And since this bean is quite satisfying, it can be served to everyone, as a main dish along with a slice of bread and a slice of fried or boiled meat, but this is already at will. I usually serve beans with vegetables only with baked goods and fresh vegetables. Good appetite!
- - For the preparation of beans, you can add any vegetables to your taste. For example, it can be zucchini, chopped garlic for a pungent taste, or even potatoes.
- - In addition to black pepper, you can add any kind of spices to your taste. I usually add seasoning such as "hops-suneli" to vegetable dishes. It is very fragrant and gives many dishes (not only vegetables) a spicy taste and aroma.
- - For aroma and aesthetic appearance, you can also sprinkle the dish with finely chopped parsley before serving.
- - When choosing beans, pay attention to white beans, as they are better boiled and more suitable for people with poor digestion.
