Creamed Beans & Potato (Fazuľkový prívarok)

Creamed Beans & Potato (Fazuľkový prívarok)

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends & readers and Happy Monday to the rest……

We celebrated our Thanksgiving last night….it was fantastic…..first time in many….many years I didn’t have to cook……

….all I had to do was a dessert…..I was in heaven…..

 

…..by the time dinner came….I was calm…..relaxed…..ready to eat….not running around…..

…..the best part……IT WASN’T IN MY HOUSE……so no cleaning and doing dishes till midnight……

 

……do you wanna know what I did when I came home?……I made a cup of tea….and I watched The Mentalist (it’s getting little creepy).

 

 

So today I am all relaxed and ready to share with you one of my favorite side dishes…..CREAMED BEANS & POTATOES……

 

Creamed Beans in Slovakia called Fazuľkový prívarok  is one of the dishes that I grew up with…..once of those dishes that I watched my grandma make for us with lard and heavy cream…..

….it is one of those dishes I still make today for my family, but as much as I miss my grandma I don’t miss the lard and heavy cream…

 

so here it is…..Creamed Beans & Potatoes or Fazuľkový prívarok ……my way

 

Creamed Beans & Potato (Fazuľkový prívarok)

 

Ingredients:

  • 1lb Yellow Beans
  • 3 Potatoes (large)
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Flour
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 cups Milk (2%)
  • 1 Tbsp Dill (chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Vinegar (or more depends on taste)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

STEP 1: Cut cleaned beans into 2″ pieces and cook on salted boiling water with Bay leaves for about 10 minutes.

STEP 2: Peel and cut potatoes into squares and add them to the beans and continue cooking until beans and potatoes are done. Drain, but keep the water.

STEP 3: In a saucepan make a rue with olive oil and flour. Add minced onion and mix it around a bit.

STEP 4: Add milk and water from beans. Cook for few minutes on medium high. Add beans and potatoes. Cook on medium for another 10-15 minutes until you have smooth and creamy texture. Make sure beans and potatoes are soft, but not overdone.

STEP 5: At the end add vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and dill. Taste and add more vinegar or sugar as you need.

 

 

You can serve Creamed Beans & Potatoes alone with homemade bread…..as a side dish with meatloaf…..

 

I love my Creamed Beans & Potatoes with Breaded Burger (Vyprážané Karbonátky) and Fried Egg.

 

Anyway you serve it….it is delicious and once you try it will become part of your menu……trust me!

    I love when you share your old family recipes like this – recipes the rest of us have never heard of and have been missing out on! As people become assimilated into new countries, the old ways and old foods have a tendency to be forgotten … that’s such a loss. Now, if I could only pronounce the name with the proper accent … :)

    This feels like such a comfort food…. just the sort of thing I have been eating lately (alas, I can’t cool right now… but good to remember!)

    I looked up the history of the Canadian Thanksgiving, and I must say, I’d much rather celebrate that Thanksgiving ;)

    Those potatoes look delicious!

  5. Pure comfort food, I agree! And I also love it when you share your family recipes – with your own “Bibi flair” added in :-)
