Easy Savory Beans

Savory Beans

I can’t buy any of the many varieties of canned ‘baked beans’ that are available in the US. I buy plain white beans and add the flavors I like. Or I make them from scratch, but this is easier.


  • 1 1/2 cups (15oz, 450gr) white beans, cannellini, drained and rinsed 
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 1 tbs Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika 


  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Add onion and sauté until tender and transparent, about 7 minutes.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, stir gently and heat through.
  • Serve.
