Black Beans & Rice

This is an easy, inexpensive meal to make weekly. You can serve it
with condiments (cheese, guacamole, scallions, tomatoes, or
cilantro.)You can also puree the beans in a food processor and add
some olive oil for a delicious bean dip or soup.

Cover a pound of black beans in water. Soak overnight. Drain and
rinse. Saute 1 chopped onion and 2 garlic cloves in 2 Tablespoons of
Olive Oil. Add black beans, salt, pepper and half a jalapeno
pepper(optional) and cook on low until beans are well cooked. You can
cook these quickly (1 hour) or slowly (4 hours) depending on how much
time you have. Serve with rice and toppings.

If you add a little baking soda or sauerkraut juice to the beans while soaking it makes them even more digestable.
