“This is a deliciously simplle way to eat beans. I keep cooked beans in my freezer to make this but you can use canned, too.”
- 1 Tablespooon olive oil
- 1 onion, peeled and diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 cups cooked black beans with a little cooking water
- 1/2 teaspooon ground ginger, or 2 Tablespoons ginger juice
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
- Sea Salt to taste
Warm pan over low heat and add oil. Add onion and garlic. Let onion cook 10 to 15 minutes to caramelize. Stir only if it looks like onion is burning. Add remaining ingredients. Heat about 10 minutes or until hot. Add additional water if necessray to keep beans from scorching.
Note: If using canned beans, do not use the liquid. Drain and rinse canned beans. Use a little water to prevent beans from scorching.
