This has always been my very favorite Moroccan food to eat. Beans. Just beans with tomatoes and spices and crusty bread. My mother-in-law spoils us by baking fresh bread so often we usually have freshly baked bread when eating Moroccan white beans.
Healthy Recipes: Moroccan White Beans
Moroccan White Beans are very simple, and very quick, and equally delicious. I use dried beans soaked in water all day but you can also use canned beans cooked on the stove top. This one of my favorite quick and simple healthy recipes!
White beans are so nutritious!
Beans are the most complete and nutritious food and make great healthy recipes. Beans have more protein than most other vegetables and they are full of energy-sustaining complex carbohydrates, folate and fiber. Here are just a few of the benefits of beans: lowered cholesterol levels, improved blood glucose control, lowered risk of many cancers, lowered blood pressure, and regulated colon functions.
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon powdered buttermilk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3 cups bread flour
- 3 tablespoons wheat bran
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted
- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- Place ingredients in bread machine pan in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
- Select Basic Bread cycle and bake!
White beans can certainly be eaten with a spoon, but they're also very good scooped up like a dip with crusty bread.
