PostSubject: BLACK BEANS WITH RICE   Tue Oct 14, 2008 1:19 pm

By North Star

A delicious Caribbean favorite that is cholesterol free and made with very little added fat.


1 lb dry black beans
7 C water
1 medium green pepper, coarsely chopped
1-1/2 C chopped onion
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 bay leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vinegar (or lemon juice)
6 C rice, cooked in unsalted water
1 jar (4 oz) sliced pimento, drained
1 lemon cut into wedges

1. Pick through beans to remove bad beans. Soak beans overnight in cold water. Drain and rinse.
2. In large soup pot or dutch oven stir together beans, water, green pepper, onion, oil, bay leaves, garlic, and salt. Cover and boil 1 hour.
3. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 3-4 hours or until beans are very tender. Stir occasionally and add water if needed.
4. Remove about 1/3 of the beans, mash and return to pot. Stir and heat through.
5. Remove bay leaves and stir in vinegar or lemon juice when ready to serve.
6. Serve over rice. Garnish with sliced pimento and lemon wedges.
