1 lb. dried black beans
1 large onion, diced
1 bell pepper (I use green), diced
1 (32 oz) box of Imagine Organic No-Chicken Broth
1 can Rotel Tomatoes (or other chopped tomatoes with green chiles)
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. Cumin seed, ground (or more to taste)
4 cloves garlic (or more)
Saute onions, bell pepper and garlic in olive oil over medium heat (use the pot the beans will be put in) until tender. Add tomatoes, broth and beans bring to a simmer. I cook my beans for 3 or more hours usually adding water if neccissary. When close to done add cumin (and any other spice you wish). Serve over rice (I use long grain brown). Very good with some sharp cheddar and sour cream mixed in. Enjoy.
Number of Servings: 20
