Number of Servings: 4


    1 cup black beans, canned
    1/2 cup frozen corn (off the cob)
    1 diced tomato or 2 roma tomatoes
    1/2 cup chopped onions
    1/2 cup diced bell pepper
    1/2 cup diced celery
    1/2 sliced okra (you can also find this frozen)
    1/2 cup dry couscous
    1/2 cup water
    1 Tbsp butter (optional, not included in nutrition)


Over medium high heat, put all of your vegetables in a pot. Stir occasionally until the onions are translucent, and then pour in the beans. Bring it to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer.

In a separate pot, bring 1/2 water and optional butter to a boil and then stir in the couscous quickly, remove from heat, and let it sit for 4-5 minutes.

Stir it all together, and it's ready to eat! I like to eat it by itself, but feel free to spice it up by rolling it into a tortilla, or stuffing it into a bell pepper. Or for an easy black bean dip, leave out the couscous and throw it all into a food processor. Enjoy!

  • So easy to make, and delicious too! I didn't have celery so I put some fresh spinach in just before it was done and it turned out really good, thanks for sharing the recipe! - 9/5/10
