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


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


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
