Description

Frijoles negros, or as they are more commonly known, Black Beans, are small, kidney-shaped beans with a shiny, black skin and creamy-coloured flesh. They have a dense, meaty texture and are a popular Mexican and Latin American ingredient in soups, burritos and almost anything else! Black beans have a velvety consistency and hold their shape well during cooking. They work wonderfully in soups, stews and salads and side dishes.

As with all beans, preparation requires a bit of forethought. After rinsing and sorting, black beans should be soaked for at least eight hours before cooking (overnight is best). Simmer for about 90 minutes until tender, then rinse again in a colander.

Black beans are a staple ingredient in Latin American and Southwestern foods, such as burritos, tacos, and chimichangas. They are often essential to the classic beans and rice side dish. Black beans pair beautifully with grains, such as in a Quinoa salad. Alternatively, try making a zesty Cuban black bean soup, sure to warm you up on cold winter days or any time of the year you want to enjoy its nurturing essence.
