Beans In Tomato Sauce With Sausage

White beans in tomato sauce with sausage and bacon is a delicious, traditional Polish dish that we call in Poland Fasolka po bretońsku. This can be translated as “Breton beans” as the dish has French origins.

This is one of my favorite one-pot meals. (I feel like I say this about every dish, oops 🙈😂).

In menus of Polish restaurants, the most common are pierogi, potato dumplings and pancakes, pork ribs and schnitzels, and other meat meals. And I would give all these dishes for a bowl full of beans!

Polish beans are smokey, spicy, filling, and truly comforting! They are seasoned with lots of dried marjoram, bay leaves, allspice berries, and smoked paprika. SO GOOD!

And you’ll just need a handful of everyday ingredients to prepare it.

How to make these Polish beans

As this recipe is very simple, you will need just a few ingredients to make it.

Here’s the checklist:

  • Beans – white, large beans will be the best but you can literally use any beans you like. You can go with dried ones and cook them first, or use canned ones (natural, without any tomato sauce etc.). Choose what’s easier for you.
  • SausagePolish smoked sausage (kiełbasa) will be the best, but don’t worry if you can’t find it. Use any sausage you want! I love the version with Spanish chorizo.
  • Smoked bacon – anything with bacon is good, right? 🙂
  • Passata and tomato paste – you will need passata (tomato puree) or canned tomatoes, plus tomato paste to thicken the sauce.
  • Garlic and onion – essentials.
  • Seasoning – bay leaves, allspice berries, smoked paprika, dried marjoram, fresh or dried parsley, salt, and black pepper. Optionally, chilli flakes or powder. All these spices are important – especially bay leaves, allspice berries, and marjoram.
  • Soy sauce – I know, it may seem weird to add soy sauce to Polish dish, but it does make sense. It adds this salty, umami flavor. It’s totally optional though. 🙂

PS. If you don’t like/eat meat, you can skip it. Add more beans and spices instead! It will be delicious too.

How to make it? To prepare this gorgeous Polish dish, you start with sautéing onions and garlic, then you add and fry chopped bacon and sausage. When that’s done, you add all the spices, tomatoes, beans, and water. Now, cover the pot and simmer over low heat for 25 minutes allowing all the flavors to mix together. Ready!

How simple is that?! 🙂
