Fabada is a traditional dish originally from Asturias, although its spread throughout the Iberian Peninsula has made it a fundamental part of the gastronomy of Spain. This typical dish has an essential ingredient: fabes or white beans.
Fabada is a very tasty dish, ideal for children since white beans are a food rich in phosphorus, vitamin B9 and magnesium. They are high in nutrients and, like legumes that they are, basic in the diet of children. With this traditional recipe from Guiainfantil We teach you to prepare an exquisite fabada with which your children will enjoy every spoonful.
- 450 gr. of fabes or white beans
- 100 gr. bacon

- 1 blood sausage
- 1 or 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 onion

1. Soak the beans the night before to soften them. Leave in plenty of water in a large bowl until ready to prepare the fabada.
2. Drain the beans the next day and put them in a pot with the meat, garlic cloves, onion and bay leaf. Cover the beans with water up to two fingers above and add salt, 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and a teaspoon of paprika.
3. Put to cook over medium heat for approximately 3 hours. During the process it is advisable to remove the excess foam and in the event that the water starts to be consumed you can add small amounts of hot water.
4. When the beans are cooked, check the salt level and if necessary add whatever you need and let it cook for a few minutes to settle. It is advisable to add it last to avoid being salty, since the meat also provides its touch of salt.
Guiainfantil's trick.If you prefer, you can cook the meat separately in a small saucepan to release some of the fat. In this way, the fabada will not become so heavy for the children.
