Low Carb Refried Beans

This version of the Mexican classic is made with black soy beans.

Prep Time: 15 minutes


  • 1-2 strips of bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 1 can black soy beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt or seasoning salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 T cream or milk


1) Fry bacon pieces until crispy.

2) Carefully add beans (it may splatter).

3) Stir, and mash beans. I use a potato masher, or sometimes a stick blender. You could put them in blender.

4) Add seasonings and adjust to taste. Heat until bubbling.

5) Add cream or milk, and serve.

Each of 4 servings has 4.5 grams effective carbohydrate plus almost 6 grams of fiber.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
