Slowcooker Black Beans

So this post is as boring as bat shit but it’s a staple and I had to share.

Black beans go with so many dishes, I add them to burritos, tacos, chilli, wraps, nachos…you get the idea. We pick up a bag from the Central Markets here in Adelaide and they cost next to nothing.

First thing to do is soak your beans overnight, simply place in a large bowl fill with water and leave.

In the morning drain the beans and add with a few bits and pieces to your slow cooker.

  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 capsicum chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp chilli (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound black beans
  1. First saute onion, capsicum and garlic
  2. Add everything to the slow cooker
  3. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8. *Note, check after 4 and if any crunch to beans cook longer
  4. When cooked and cooled divide up into portions and freeze.           **if using on the day add a some lime jucie and coriander for a kick then add to your dish 

Simple boring recipe and probably easier to buy canned but I still get icky using canned goods so prefer this method.
