When I found out my regular grocery store carries Eden Black Soy Beans in the Natural Foods section, I grabbed a bunch to try out some recipes. I had wondered how these would taste mashed and fried. I found a recipe at Low Carb Luxury for Refried Black Soy Beans, but of course I had to modify it a little. I did like the addition of bacon because it gave a really nice flavor to the soy beans. In fact, I think I’ll add more bacon next time.
I simplified the original recipe because I like to make my cooking as easy as possible. There were a lot more steps in Lora’s recipe. Other than cooking the bacon, the ingredients can all be processed together before frying in the skillet.
These low carb refried beans would taste great with cheese rolled into a carb conscious tortilla to make a burrito. They can be served plain or topped with cheese. This is also something that can be used to make a layered tortilla chip dip. I know you will enjoy this if you are a fan of Mexican food.
2 15-oz cans Eden Organic Black Soy Beans
6 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut or almond milk
In a large skillet, cook bacon until just done, not crispy. Leave in skillet and set aside.
Drain 2 cans of black soy beans. Put into a blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well blend. Add bean mixture to bacon and cook until warmed throughout.

I have returned from a week long vacation and am ready to get back into low carb cooking. Before I left, I had been experimenting with making a pizza crust out of coconut flour. My first try resulted in a bland and spongy bread. I received several suggestions on my Facebook page on how to improve the recipe. I added ground flax seed to get rid of the sponginess. The added flax really made a difference and resulted in a much crisper crust. I like pizza crust that is thin and crispy so the flax meal was a great addition. To fix the taste, I added more seasoning as well as a little olive oil.
I warned my picky daughter that the delicious smelling pizza had a “special” crust on it. She was still willing to try it because I had already sampled it and told her it wasn’t bad. My daughter’s favorite frozen pizza is Freshetta so her comment was “It’s okay, but it’s no Freshetta.” Just the fact that she finished the slice without a complaint is reason enough to call the recipe a success.
⅓ cup coconut flour
¼ cup parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons ground flax
4 large eggs
1-2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning Blend
1 teaspoon parsley
¾ cup mozzarella cheese
Place all ingredients except mozzarella cheese into a food processor. Process until there are no more lumps. Fold in mozzarella cheese. Spread onto greased baking sheet or line sheet with non-stick silicon mat. Bake at 375 F for about 20-25 minutes or until top is browned.
Slice into strips for bread sticks. For pizza, top with sauce and toppings then bake at 350 F for about 12 minutes.
