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…..


… 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)



  • 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… 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 :-)
