Scrambled Eggs with Beans | The Most UNDERRATED Dish EVER

These Scrambled Eggs with Beans, known as Revuelto con Alubias Blancas, are possibly one of the most underrated dishes ever. We’re talking a ton of great flavors, seriously easy to make and all done in just 20 minutes. Serve them for breakfast or even for dinner, and always next to some Catalan Tomato Bread.

Scrambled Eggs with Beans
To make this recipe, I used canned white beans. Just to make this quicker and easier. If you prefer, you can use dried white beans. Just soak them in plenty of water overnight and then simmer the following day for 1 to 2 hours or until tender.

Scrambled Eggs with Beans
As for the eggs, I used cage-free organic eggs. You can use whatever eggs you like. But like I’ve told you in the past. On recipes that are this simple, the higher the quality of the ingredients, the better the overall flavor.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: A great scramble takes no more than 2 to 3 minutes to cook on a medium heat. If you overcook the eggs, they will end up with a rubbery texture. Make sure to use a nonstick fry pan. So the eggs don’t stick to the surface while cooking.
