Black Beans are a key store cupboard ingredient for me. I use them all the time. Mostly to make my favourite gluten-free, vegan recipes over and over again. But I do like to branch out sometimes. So, I have pulled together Four Delicious Black Bean Recipes.
What are Black Beans???
Now, I need to be clear that we are talking about black beans (AKA turtle beans) which are a staple of Latin American and Mexican cooking. Black beans are used in chillies, as a filling for wraps and sometimes blended to a refried bean paste (with pinto beans) for nachos.
I also use a lot of fermented (or salted) black beans – for example when I cook Tofu and Green Peppers in Black Bean Sauce. These fermented black beans are in-fact fermented soya beans – they turn a really dark colour after being fermented. They are amazing!! But in a different way to Latin American black beans (AKA turtle beans).
Four Delicious Black Bean Recipes
So, sticking with the Latin American black bean I have Four Delicious Black Bean Recipes to share with you. All totally Gluten-Free | Vegan | Allergy-Friendly | Seasonal …and… onion-free, garlic-free and coconut-free.
I hope you like!!!
Mexican Black Bean Soup
Mexican Black Bean Soup is the most delicious, deeply flavoured, nutritious soup you can wish for. It takes a little time to cook but is well worth the wait. I adore the fresh lime added at the end.
Black Bean and Kale Enchiladas
Black Bean and Kale Enchiladas are comfort food turned up to 11. Rich, warming, filling. I can recommend a light salad with this dish!
Chilli Sin Carne
Chilli Sin Carne is a crowd pleaser. Perfect when you have lots of guests arriving at different times (maybe like over Christmas???). It freezes really well too.
Mexican Black Bean Casserole
Mexican Black Bean Casserole is another crowd pleaser that goes with rice, guacamole and any salad. Just very, very good.
