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
- First saute onion, capsicum and garlic
- Add everything to the slow cooker
- Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8. *Note, check after 4 and if any crunch to beans cook longer
- 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.
