Black beans, originated from Americas, have a relatively mild flavor that goes well with some strong or spicy flavors like cilantro, chili, onion or garlic. Black beans make a great puree because of their dense and meaty texture.
Black beans are sweet in taste and have a dense, meaty texture, making them a popular ingredient in vegetarian dishes such as Frijoles negros ("black beans") and the famous Mexican-American burrito. In various regions of Brazil, it is used in a national dish called feijoada, and in Cuba it is the main ingredient in the traditional "Moors and Christians" treat and the iconic black bean soup.
Like most of the beans besides protein, black beans provide lots of fiber which helps to stay full for a longer period, at the same time it reduces bloating. Black beans are good protection for your bones. Dried beans contain nearly double the folate that canned beans contain, so it is better to cook them from their dried form!

HOW TO ENJOY

Black Beans are perfect in Mexican style dishes such as chili, tacos, burritos, or nachos; they also make a great ingredient for veggie burgers. Alternatively add them in your salad - hint! avocado, mango, black beans, fresh coriander and lime is a remarkable combination. Before cooking soak beans overnight in water with 1:3 proportion. Beans will release into the water all those substances that can cause flatulence and bloating. After 8-10 hours, your bowl will have firm, fresh beans that look like they were recently harvested.
Any beans take a long time to cook, so set aside more cooking time in advance - an average of 1.5 to 3 hours.
