The BEST Slow Cooker Vegan Beans | 1 Pot of Beans, 4 Easy Frugal Meals | No Oil Refried Bean Recipe

These are the BEST beans in our opinion and I’m happy to share my recipe with you! From one pot of beans, we love to eat it these 4 ways. They’re affordable, delicious and perfect for any season of the year especially these hot summer days because it limits the amount of cooking that I need to do.

Peruano aka Canary aka Mayocoba are THE BEST beans in our opinion. If you cannot find these beans, Pinto beans are an excellent replacement.

1 pound of Peruano or Pinto beans
6 cups of water
1 large onion peeled and quartered
3 cloves of minced garlic (9 grams)
.25-.5 tsp red pepper flakes (~1 gram. Use more or less depending on your level of spice. I used .25 tsp and they are very mild for us)
1 tsp cumin (3 grams)
1 tsp salt (6 grams)
.25 tsp pepper (less than 1 gram)

Cook on HIGH for 8 hours. Using the kill-a-watt, I measured this to cost us 32 cents of electricity. I think that’s pretty inexpensive for so many meals!
