INSTRUCTIONS

Pour the olive oil into a small saucepan and heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook until they become translucent and ever so slightly brown around the edges. This should only take you about 3-4 minutes. Do not burn!

Add the undrained beans, cumin, cilantro, and sea salt. After stirring thoroughly, turn down the heat. Continue to simmer your mixture for 15-20 minutes, continuing to stir as needed. Taste and adjust the spice level to your personal preferences. We like ours spicy, but you may or may not share our sentiments.

Garnish your beans with additional chopped cilantro and some crumbled vegan cheese, if desired. Serves about four ravenous guests, especially when served on tortillas and combined with other ingredients such as jackfruit, vegan crumbles, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and green onions. Go wild and use your imagination!

These beans store easily in a secure container and will keep well in your refrigerator for up to four days. We have never attempted to freeze them, but we are sure it is possible. There’s no point in freezing these beans, however, because they are so delicious! We feel certain that you will agree.

You’ll be amazed by how easy it is to achieve a gourmet flavor with such a small number of inexpensive ingredients. Your friends will beg you for the recipe! Be sure to send them over to this site. We love new readers here at The Happy Gluten Free Vegan!

Don’t forget to save room for vegan, gluten-free beer or wine, and one of our yummy desserts. Enjoy your meal, and happy autumn!
