This recipe is plant-based (no eggs, dairy-free). It is made with only whole plant food ingredients.

Cooking in a clay pot takes longer but the time spent waiting is well worth it.

As the pot slowly heats up, all the flavors from the beans, vegetables, and spices mixed together and the result, in our opinion, is truly special.

If you don’t have a clay pot, you can also use a high-temperature resistant glass pot with a lid or a casserole.

Why you should eat more beans?

Here are some of the numerous benefits of eating beans:

  • Beans are rich in resistant starch that slows the absorption of glucose and keeps your blood sugar level well balanced.
  • They are abundant in fiber that improves digestion and reduces excess cholesterol in your body.
  • Beans are an excellent source of healthy plant proteins.
  • Regular bean consumption (at least twice a week) reduces cancer risk with 50%.

  2. Put them in a pot and boil for 10 min, throw away the water to reduce the risk of stomach bloating.
  3. Place them in the clay pot or another ovenproof dish. Add the
    chopped carrot, onion, zucchini, tomato and seasonings (mint, paprika,
    savory, turmeric, black pepper, and salt.) Stir well.
  4. Add about 2-3 cups of water to cover the beans around half an inch over.
  5. Put the clay pot in the oven and turn it on to 180°C (350°F).
  6. Bake for about 2 hours.
  7. When it is ready, add the ground flax seeds and mix everything well. Sprinkle with chopped parsley or fresh mint leaves.


  • It is important not to preheat the oven or you risk to break the clay pot.
  • The flax seeds add a bit of creamier and thicker texture to the
    meal, giving it a creamy feel. You can add more ground flax seeds if you
    like it even creamier.
