Bean dish with sesame. Ready in just 15 minutes

Bean food is considered a traditional food in many countries, with hundreds of versions all over the world. The French call it cassoulet and cook it with duck. Seafood or fish are added to Mediterranean cuisine.

In South America there are versions with beef or different kinds of sausages. Vegetarians simply give up the meat in it and add various spices and greens to enhance its taste.

As I've told you in other posts, I have days when I eat vegetarian to maintain a balanced diet.

Today being one of those days I chose to make the vegan version of the bean recipe, with a special twist: I added sesame.

But for those who do not want to give up meat, you can always add a chorizo ​​sausage, cut into thick slices, which will bring an extra taste that will satisfy even the most carnivorous of you.

You can enjoy it hot, because the flavors of the ingredients used intensify and you can make it as spicy as you want (according to taste), choosing more or less hot peppers.

It can be made with any kind of beans, and to shorten the cooking time I used pre-cooked beans.

The way we serve this bean dish leaves room for imagination.

I used a metal bowl serving Indian food, especially curry, but you can also use other plating such as a flat plate, a clay bowl, to which you can add a few slices of garlic-flavored toast, which go great with this food and adds a crunchy texture.
