My Loubia / Lubia / Loobia - Classic Algerian Beans!
127 mins (prep 2, cooking 125)
11 ingredients
6-8 servings
The best way to describe these beans is a spicier version of English baked beans! Haricot beans are cooked in a tomato sauce flavoured with lots of garlic, cumin & paprika. This recipe is for the way I cook it most - the slow cook way - but you can make it easily in a pressure cooker; just reduce the water to a total of 2 litres, add a chicken stock cube & take care with the seasoning. It should only take 45-50 mins in the pressure cooker. If you have any Algerian hot green peppers, this is really nice with 1-2 thrown in half way through! N.B: Time to make doesn't include overnight soaking of the beans.
