Black Bean Heaven -

I learned how to cook black beans from my good friend Sofia who is from Venezuela,, this is close to her family recipe! 

Ingredients

  • 4 cups dried black beans
  • 10 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable stock concentrate (optional)
  • 1 teaspoons salt (optional)
  • 2 yellow onions, chopped
  • 5 cloves crushed garlic
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2Tbsp cumin
  • 3 Tbsp lime or lemon juice
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro

You can use canned black beans if you want :)

Method

1 Prepare the beans. Rinse and check beans for any dirt etc. Soak your beans over night to take away gassy after math chances.  Soaking will speed up the cooking process. If you soak, discard the soaking liquid after soaking.

2 Add beans to a large pot 10 cups of water.  Bring the beans to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until the beans are soft, but not quite done. Anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half.

3 While the beans are cooking, sautΓ© onions in spices and vegetable stock concentrate with a few tablespoons of water until soft. Add chili powder, cumin, and garlic. SautΓ© until spices are fragrant.

4 Add the onion mixture and salt to the pot of beans. Cook another hour or so until thickened.

5 Add lemon juice, and simmer.  Just before serving, add more lime juice to taste and all cilantro. 

With delicious vegan tacos, colorful black beans and cilantro dressing; have a healthy meal and stay fit whole day.
