Black Beans & Why I Like Them

This hearty vegetable has fantastic benefits.

  • A good source of carbohydrates for body builders. They don’t have the fat-building potential of cereal grains and dairy products.
  • They’re a cheap and nutritious food. They may be eaten out of the can as a snack food. I sleep well when I eat them for an evening snack.
  • Easily digested and loaded with protein, fiber, and disease fighting antioxidants.
  • May help protect against heart disease, weight gain and certain cancers.
  • Makes a complete meal, and if a few onions are included they help keep unwanted company at a respectable distance.
  • Their high nutrient content makes them a good choice for snacks, picnics and lunches.
  • They travel well and don’t need refrigerated.
  • These guys will help build energy and vitality.
  • A few spoon-fulls will satisfy the appetite quicker than candies, cookies or a sweetened drink. I even found a recipe for black bean brownies.

Recipe For Beans And Onions

Ingredients:

  • One pound of dried beans
  • One large onion
  • A half teaspoon of salt
  • A quarter spoonful of black pepper

Dried black beans are readily available in most supermarkets.

Preparation of dried beans:

  • Wash and look carefully for any stones. Soak them overnight and rinse them.
  • Almost any pan will do for cooking.
  • Cover them with ample water and bring to a low boil.
  • Add some onions and salt and pepper.
  • Simmer them for several hours.
  • Don’t let them cook into a mush unless you are making sandwiches.

This will make about 6 to 8 meals.
These will keep for a week in the refrigerator.

  1. I love black beans but do not eat them because they make me so “gassy”. I have heard and read if you soak them first the effects will not be as potent. Do you have any overt suggestions?
