Cuban Black Beans Recipe #1


  • 1/2 lb. dried black beans
  • 1 med onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 small green pepper, finely chopped
  • garlic, pressed (however much you can stand. I probably used 4-5 cloves)
  • a little oregano
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1-2 bay leaves
  • a med. spoonful of Dijon or other strong-flavoured mustard
  • 1 Tbsp dark, strong-flavored vinegar
  • red wine to taste
  • a little red pimento, finely chopped (maybe 1/4 cup)
  • dash of red (cayenne) pepper
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 veg. bouillon cube
  • 1 1-inch piece of Kombu sea vegetable (optional, some say)


Wash and soak the beans overnight in water to cover. The next day, sauté the onion and green pepper until soft. Add black beans, along with soaking water.

Add remaining ingredients, stir well, cover, and cook until beans are soft. Serve over rice with chopped onions on top.

Servings: 4-6
