Serves: 4
These Creamy Black Beans & Rice are a quick and easy meal to make when you're short on time and need to get dinner on the table!
  • 1 Tbs. oil
  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 (15 oz) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz) can low sodium vegetable/chicken broth
  • Toppings: cilantro, tomatoes and other taco-type toppings
  1. Add the oil to a medium-large saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and stir until wilted. Add the garlic and cumin and stir to combine, cook 1 additional minute.
  2. Meanwhile, place ½ can of beans and ½ can broth in a food processor and process until liquidy, about 30 seconds. Repeat with the process with the other half of the beans and broth. Stir bean/broth mixture as well as the 2nd can of whole black benas into the pan with the onion mixture.
