so good for you!

Black beans are not only healthy they are vegetarian, even with rice. Now I am not a vegetarian, but my family do crave just vegetables sometimes. This dish fits the bill!

I love to serve these over brown rice, it just looks so pretty and is super nutritional. These beans provide so much protein that I do not use any meat at all in them, my family never complains.fresh black beans

I grew up on beans and rice!

Black beans and rice are true comfort food and because they are so filling you don’t need a lot. You are getting a lot of fiber from these black beans and rice, which is excellent for the waistline! Because we were not rich, my grandmother served us some kind of bean almost every day, yet we were lean, healthy and strong.

Although these amazing vegetarian black beans were not a staple on my grandmother’s table, I discovered them while trying to provide nutritional food for the army of men that I cook for every day. Some nights I would include a pan of sweet cornbread or freshly cooked pita bread, my family loves it.  Try cooking these and see that you won’t add them to your regular menu!


Please let me know if you make these delicious beans, and I would love it if you leave me a star rating!

Thank you!
