Vegan Pinto Beans Recipe

Posted on

If you’re someone who eats meat but wants to turn into a vegetarian/vegan, it can be pretty hard to get your protein in. Beans are a great source of protein. They’re great in tacos, with rice, in burritos, on salads, etc.

These pinto beans were made in a crockpot but you can make them over the stove as well (bring beans to boil and simmer for about 4 hours) I prefer making them in the crockpot though because they are so tender and a lot more flavorful!

– 3 cups dried pinto beans (I bought mine at whole foods; bulk section baby!)
– 3 tbsp cumin powder
– 1 tbsp garlic powder
– 1 tbsp paprika
– 1/2 tsp red crushed peppers
– 1tbsp olive oil
– 1 onion, diced
– 2 roma tomatoes
– 5 cloves of garlic

Throw all ingredients in the crockpot. Add about 8 cups of water, about an inch from the top. Turn crockpot on high and leave for about eight hours until tender. Enjoy!

(I will post recipes for bean & cheese burrito and bean tacos featuring these beans this upcoming week. Watch out for them. They’re delicious!)

Namaste, Jenn

  1. I can always go for a little pinto and a load of garlic; thanks for putting up the soup recipe:))

    • Haha, it’s not really a “SOUP”, you’d still have to eat it with other things but it is really delicious! You’d love it in a bean & cheese burrito. Nom Nom Nom. Thanks for checking it out.
