    I’ve only ever tried black beans in a black bean sauce and I didn’t like it at all. However this actually looks pretty nice and I might have to give black beans another try!

    I haven only tried black beans once, I am sure it was in a Chilli and was really lovely, am American friend of mine cooked it x

    Oh I do love black beans… Just a pity they are not more widely available in supermarkets here (or at least not the supermarkets around me!). I made some for a salad a couple of weeks ago when we had our big BBQ and it went down a storm!

      You have to go to ethic stores to be able to get the bigs bags of them but I have started finding the smaller packs in my local supermarket (labelled as Turtle beans)

    Hah! you and I must be on the same wavelength:) Thanks for this, I think I’ll edit rice and beans post to include this handy guide on how to prepare the beans.

    I used to cook dried beans all the time but got lazy – really must get back to cooking them again.

    black beans are delicious ! I like them very vey much. Before I cook them I let them soak in water overnight and then boil them in the same water which now has a blac-violet tint. I like to add 1 medium – small clove of garlic, one big onion(chopped small), fresh parsley, red chili, a tiny bit of cumin and curry. Just before I finish I add in some more parsley, and salt. et voila ! delicious black beans !
