Beans in smoked praprika sauce

Beans in Paprika Sauce

Need hearty, tasty, impressive? This little number does all that and comes together in a flash. Combine with Moroccan couscous or any favourite grain and fresh greens.

The smoked paprika is the clincher – make sure you have some.


1 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 red capsicum, diced
1/2 C vegetable stock or water
2 cans of tomato
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp mixed herbs
1 tsp apple or maple syrup
1 can butter beans, drained & rinsed
1/2 C cashews
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
Spinach (optional)


  1. Steam saute onion, garlic and capsicum in 1/4-1/2 C vegetable stock or water until translucent ~8 mins. Add a little more stock to prevent sticking as needed.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, smoked paprika, herbs, apple syrup, butter beans and salt. Simmer gently for 10 mins.
  3. Meanwhile blend 1/2 cup of cashews with 1/2 water and add to your sauce.
  4. Wilt in the spinach and serve.
