Black Beans for a Lazy Day

These beans are my ultimate go to food when I need something comforting, filling and not fattening. I love them with a couple of warm corn tortillas or a ham and mango quesadilla.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil, onion, garlic and cumin over medium heat until onion starts to brown.
  2. Add the beans and their juice.
  3. Stir.
  4. Simmer the beans covered for about 15-20minutes.
  5. Stir occasionally.
  6. Enjoy!

Oh so simple, healthy and delightful! I ate it with Recipe #263512. I love the flavor the cumin adds and the fact that I only have to add one spice. I will definitely be making this again!

These are so easy and so good! They almost taste like they have been simmering all day! I love the smokiness of the cumin! Thanks for a great recipe! *Made for ZWT ZINGO*
