I was making dinner for Taylor and decided to do a
Caribbean themed dinner.
I might these beans and the crispy fish.
The beans started from bagged, beans.
I had never used those before and you do have to soak them for a while,
but it was well worth it for taste and texture.
1 lb. Black Beans
¼ C Olive Oil
1 large Onion, chopped
1 medium Green Bell Pepper, chopped
6 cloves Garlic, minced
5 C Water
1 (6oz.) can Tomato Paste
1 (4oz.) jar Diced Pimentos, drained
1 Tbsp Vinegar
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp White Sugar
1 tsp Black Pepper
Soak beans 8 hours or overnight in water.
Enough water to cover
In 8 hours, or the next day. Drain beans.
Heat Oil in a pot over medium heat, sauté Onion, Green Pepper, and Garlic
Stir drained Beans, Water, Tomato Paste, Pimentos, and Vinegar into Onion mixture.
Season with Salt, Sugar, and Pepper.
Bring to a boil. Cover, Reduce heat, and simmer 1 ½ hrs stirring occasionally,
until beans are tender.
It isn't hard recipe, just takes a lot of time.
Can be eaten plain, or with Cheese, Salsa,
