Spanish Bean Stew

How to make a Spanish Bean Stew.

Ingredients: Serves 4-6

  • 2 cans of white beans
  • a handful of rice
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of flour
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Chop the peppers and onion and poach them in a pan with a splash of olive oil.
  2. It is not necessary to make the pieces very small, since later we will crush the sauce.
  3. When the vegetables are poached, add a tablespoon of flour.
  4. Cook whilst stirring.
  5. Add a tablespoon of paprika being careful not to burn it.
  6. Continue stirring.
  7. Add a crushed garlic and a glass of water.
  8. Let everything cook for five minutes, then grind and reserve.
  9. Open the two cans of beans and rinse them well in water.
  10. Take a pot, put a little water and when it is boiling add a handful of rice.
  11. When ten minutes have passed and the rice begins to have consistency, add the beans to the stew.
  12. Also add salt and pepper to your own liking.
  13. Immediately after adding the beans to the pot, add the sofrito, previously mashed.
  14. It will give you that stew flavour without having to throw in any high-fat foods.
  15. Add the bay leaf.
  16. Stir and let everything cook together for approximately 15 minutes, so that the elements are well integrated.
  17. When you see the reddish colour and the rice has finished cooking, remove from the heat.
  18. Remove the bay leaf.
  19. Serve and enjoy with some fresh crusty bread!
