Seriously Simple Black Beans

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

I love healthy food and don't have a lot of time to cook during the week, so I make a huge batch of this for dinners all week. I eat it pretty much every week night with brown rice, cornbread, and veggies.


  1. Simmer beans in water with salt, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper until tender then drain excess water.
  2. Sautee garlic and onions in olive oil until caramelized.
  3. Add caramelized onions and garlic and chopped cilantro.
  4. Serve over rice and enjoy.

This was very good. We tried it minus the cilantro and it was wonderful. Also tried it as part of a taco salad using ground turkey and it tasted great.
