Today was my husband’s Hebrew birthday. Given our past year, we feel very grateful to celebrate it together. Jay made a special request for something with black, kidney or lima beans. I am happy to say that I think that I hit the jackpot on this one!
1 lbs black beans
1 pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 teaspoons cumin, paprika
1 teaspoon coriander, oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
After cooked: chopped fresh cilantro
Soak beans overnight. Ideally, I recommend sautéing the onions and peppers. Then, add the spices and beans and sauté until fragrant. Add water to cover and simmer until done. Adjust seasoning. Fresh cilantro before serving adds a special gourmet touch.
This morning, however, was time challenging morning. I did not have the time to sauté everything first.
Instead, I placed all the ingredients into the crockpot and it cooked on low for the day.
This could also be made in the pressure cooker, 24 minutes to pressure, unsoaked, quick release method.
Here are the pictures:
We served this with rice and taco shells. It was a definite hit! Raizel said, “I am having more! Yummy! Why is it so good?!”
Happy Birthday Jay!🎈
