from Real Simple Magazine; I took out the radishes and used dried cilantro instead of fresh at the simmer point. from Real Simple Magazine; I took out the radishes and used dried cilantro instead of fresh at the simmer point.
Number of Servings: 4


    1 cup long-grain white rice
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    1 bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    2 15.5-ounce cans black beans, rinsed
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 tablespoon red wine vinegar


Cook the rice according to the package directions. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the cumin and cook for 1 minute. Add the beans, oregano, and 1 cup water. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Add the vinegar and smash some of the beans with the back of a fork to thicken. Serve the beans over the rice.

    My first attempt to use black beans as the dinner "main event"...Rave Reviews! I added cilantro, paprika, fresh chilis and lime. Subbed cider vinegar, and left out the bell pepper. Oh and more garlic. It was so good it didn't even need cheese :) Definitely a keeper - 3/26/10

    This recipe was okay, but ended up tasting similar (but not nearly as good) to a recipe I've been making for years, so I doubt I'll be making this again. I don't think it's necessary to add so much water, as it makes the final bean mixture too soupy. Tastes great with salsa and light sour cream. - 4/30/13

  • I was given some black beans and didn't know what to do with them so I will try this recipe. I may comment again after I make this recipe. Thanks for the idea. - 10/17/11
