Easy Black Beans
By adding a few aromatics to a can of black beans, you get that Mexican-restaurant flavor without hours of soaking and cooking.
1 can black beans
4 stems cilantro
1 clove garlic, crushed
pinch of salt
1. Combine everything together in a small pot and simmer over low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes. (We do this while we’re preparing the rest of the meal.)
2. Be sure to simmer the beans long enough so that they’re not watery.
3. Serve warm or at room temparture, or store for later use.
