Cheap Lazy Vegan One Pot Bean Stew – simple Recipe

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Cheap Lazy Vegan One Pot Bean Stew – simple Recipe

This is a delicious and simple meal. Perfect for lazy vegans and for quarantine since we should all try to be cheap now. This is a great lunch or dinner recipe and one of my favorites which reminds me of my childhood.

Bean stew
1 1/2 TBSP Coconut oil
1 big onion
100g (2 3/4 cups) celery
1 TBSP salt
1 TSP pepper
300 g (2 1/3 cups) carrots
500 ml (2 cups) tomato sauce
1-2 .5 L filtered water
2 cups (411 g) raw white beans
1 big Handful Parsley

Soak your beans over night for about 7 hours in water and 2 tbsp of salt. After 7 hours, discard the water and rinse the beans. (if you sprout your beans, they will cook in 1/4 of cooking time.) set aside.

Add oil to saucepan and add finely chopped onions, chopped celery, salt and pepper. fry for 10 min until onions are translucent and well cooked. Then add the chopped carrots, tomato sauce, water and beans. Cook on high with lid partially on for 25 minutes and then after 25 min cover the pot with lid, and cook until beans are tender which for me took another 10 min. Cooking time for me was around 35- 40 minutes because my beans were sprouted. If sprouted use up 1 – 1.5 Litres of water as your beans will cook within 45 minutes.
If you don’t sprout your beans, depending on their age, size, and variety, beans can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours to cook through, especially if they aren’t sprouted. Be patient. Add more water as needed to keep the beans submerged, and stir occasionally. If your beans take up to 2-3 hours to cook you will need to add up to 2.5 Litres of water. Once the beans are tender, turn off heat and top with chopped parsley.
