Here's a recipe I made with my black beans; it's absolutely delicious!
Originally the recipe called for making it with ground beef, but black beans worked so well in it that I don't think I'd ever make it with ground beef. I do plan on trying it with other beans, chickpeas, and lentils, and I'm sure they'd all taste terrific in this recipe.
I based this recipe on the Pakistani Kima recipe from Whole New Mom's website.
Pakistani Black Bean CurryIngredients:
3-4 tablespoons healthy oil
2 large onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 cups cooked black beans
3 tablespoons curry powder
3-4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
4-5 large tomatoes, chopped
4-5 medium potatoes, chopped really small
2 1/2-3 cups peas
1 cup water
1. Chop onions, mince garlic. Saute until golden.
2. Add spices and cook for 2 minutes.
3. Add beans and cook for 2 minutes.
4. Add the rest of the ingredients, and cook on medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally.
5. When the potatoes are soft, serve. This tastes terrific with rice.
