This recipe is simple, but so tasty and is ready in less than 30 minutes. I love my beans with rice, so I always eat this stew with some Basmati rice.


  • 2 ½ cups canned or cooked black beans (430 g)
  • ½ cup water (125 ml)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ½ chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • Cayenne powder to taste
  • Black pepper to taste


  1. Place 1/2 cup of the beans (86 g) in a blender. Add the water, cloves of garlic and chopped onion and blend until smooth.
  2. Place the rest of the ingredients in a large pot and the mixture you’ve just blended.
  3. Bring it to a boil and then cook over medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes. If the stew is too dry, add more water.
  4. We added some chopped red bell pepper and cilantro for garnish.
