Baked Beans: A Filling Taste of Tradition
Baked beans are one of those flavors that are invariably associated with home, the warmth of a family hearth and Sunday dinner at grandma's. This is a dish that every Pole knows and loves, regardless of age or place of residence. The history of baked beans dates back to the 17th century and is associated with French cuisine, specifically with the Brittany region. The fishermen there began to prepare the beans with bacon and onions, and later the dish evolved into what we know today. Although the ingredients may seem simple, it is this simplicity that makes baked beans so delicious and filling. The Polish version of baked beans is slightly different from the original recipe, but retains its unique characteristics. Traditionally, we use white beans, bacon, onion, sausage and tomato paste to prepare the beans. This dish is extremely filling, which is why it works great as a dinner, but also as a dish for a party or picnic.
- 500g white beans (about 17.6 oz)
- 200g smoked bacon (about 7 oz)
- 200g sausage (about 7 oz)
- 2 large onions (about 300g / 10.6oz)
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon of sweet paprika
- 1 liter of broth (about 4.2 cups )
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons of oil for frying
- Soak the beans overnight and then cook until soft (approx. 1-1.5 hours). Drain after cooking.
- Dice the bacon and sausage, finely chop the onion and garlic.
- Heat the oil in a pan, add the bacon and fry until browned. Then add the sausage and fry together for a few minutes.
- Add the chopped onion and garlic to the bacon and sausage, fry until the onion softens and begins to lightly brown.
- Add tomato paste and paprika, mix and fry for a while.
- Put everything into a pot, add the cooked beans and pour the broth. We bring to a boil.

As a choreographer and aerial gymnast, I had always been interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Diets had been my hobby, but I never truly enjoyed them until I discovered the Keto diet. After reading numerous books about how our bodies work and the benefits of a high-fat, low-carb diet, I decided to give it a try. I never looked back. The Keto lifestyle quickly became my passion, and I began experimenting with new recipes and meal plans. That's when I decided to share my knowledge with the world and created Leet Diet, a website filled with delicious Keto-friendly recipes and helpful tips for anyone looking to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
