Stewed black beans offer a plethora of possibilities… served simply as a side over rice, a soup base, or blended for Garnaches!
Black beans = easy + healthy
If you want to make stewed black beans the easiest way, use a crock pot! 1 lb beans on the “high” setting will take 6 – 8 hours to cook. Simply throw all the ingredients into the pot, turn it on, and walk away! Beans are also very easy on the stove top, they just need to be monitored a little more.
Recipes that use stewed black beans:
Garnaches are a Belize News Post favorite. They use this black bean recipe for the blended beans. The stewed beans need to be blended in a blender or with an immersion blender, and then simmered on the stove top until the consistency is thick enough to coat a spoon lightly.
Belizean Breakfast is another way to eat black beans, either stewed, or blended!
Rice and Beans are not traditionally made with black beans, but are very delicious with stewed black beans instead of Kidney beans!
