I absolutely love black beans, I can eat a full bowl of them.
Like chickpeas I think it makes such a huge difference to use dried beans rather than tinned. It’s totally worth it the cooking time. Cook it with love and the results will make even a meat lover drool. If you don’t have the time to soak and cook the dried beans simply skip the first two steps.
Go south american style and serve them with fried plantains, rice and salad.
