Greek Baked Beans in a Clay Pot Recipe

Written by in , Comments Off on Greek Baked Beans in a Clay Pot Recipe

Clay pot cooking has been a part of Greek cuisine since ancient times. It is timeless because it works! The clay tends to meld the flavors in a certain way, and this is especially true of baked beans. In this Greek version, you can use any type of dried bean that you have on hand except lentils or split peas, because these types of legumes require a slightly different technique.

Greek Baked Beans in a Clay Pot Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 pound dried beans of choice, such as chick peas, gigantes, or lima beans, soaked in water overnight and then drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon Greek sea salt
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup Greek olive oil
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon Greek oregano

How to Make Greek Baked Beans in a Clay Pot:

Place all ingredients in a large earthenware clay pot and toss gently with a wooden spoon to mix.

Fill the pot with water so that it covers the beans by three inches. Cover the pot with the lid.

Place the pot in the center of a cold oven. Set to 250 Degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 8-9 hours, or until the beans are soft.
