Cuban Black Beans

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on


… And we’re back to the beautiful weather here.  We just spent the last two hours outside, tidying up the garden(by tidying I mean keeping the mess down, because it’s never very tidy) and playing with the neighbor kids in the sun.  So much fun!  It feels good to be outside in a T-shirt again, soaking up some sunlight.  But very weird that we had an inch of fresh snow on the ground yesterday.

Now that we’re back inside lunch feels like a good idea, even if it is 2 hours late.  Good thing these beans make awesome leftovers.  They even freeze really well so if you want to double the recipe you don’t have to fear the endless leftovers.

I know these aren’t the most attractive.  Really, I do.  I tried to make it look as pretty as I could, but unfortunately, this was the best I could do.  But don’t let it scare you off, these beans do taste pretty darn good which is why they’re here.  If you don’t like cilantro, I’m afraid you’re out of luck, just come back for my next post – I promise it’s cilantro free.

I love cilantro and this looks like a super tasty way to make black beans. I’ll have to try this one for sure!

It’s really hard to make the black beans look good for a photo, but you did well 🙂 I just cooked some super delicious azukis beans and I’m still wondering how to pull that out for a post…

Yumm, might have to toss these ingredients in my slow cooker, I’ve wanted to try making black beans for a while now and this recipe looks delicious (and am way too ADD to be trusted with things on the stove for extended periods of time)

That would probably work well too 😀 Go for it!
