Introduction

Fantastic and super easy beans -- great lunch or side dish Fantastic and super easy beans -- great lunch or side dish
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 can plain black beans (like Goya)
    1 t. olive oil
    1-2 cloves garlic, minced
    dried thyme
    red pepper flakes
    curry powder

Directions

In a non-stick skillet on med-high heat, add olive oil and garlic, cook 1 minute or until garlic sizzles a little -- do not let garlic brown.
add entire contents of black bean can -- all juices!
add spices as desired. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until much of the liquid is cooked off and the black beans are in a thick sauce.
That's it! Great with brown rice, or served with a side veggie like broccoli (the sauce from the beans means you need no other condiment on the veggie!)

Number of Servings: 2

    Corn is another entertaining additive - just chucked a cup of frozen kernels in with the beans. Yum yum! - 1/17/08

    I was looking for something quick to go with my grilled chix and rice tonight. This was awesome on top of the rice. My family at every last bite so I don't even have leftovers for tomorrow's lunch. - 4/3/07
