For many years before I quit eating meat,I did not add meat to beans.The bouillon cube and plenty of garlic,onions,they are very flavorful.I don't personally care for cumin,add if you like.
When I cook beans,I also add a pot of water on a low simmer,if you need to add additional water while cooking,add hot water.You can also cook the beans in the crock pot. Also when I use bouillon cubes,I don't add additional salt,taste for seasoning and decide if you need salt or another bouillon cube.
A friend of mine says she adds a tablespoon of olive oil at the end of cooking,I don't always do that.

How to Make Vegetarian Black Beans


  1. Pick through beans for rocks or bad beans.Rinse several times. I don't soak beans overnight but if you do,do so.
    Place all ingredients in a large pan and enough cold water to cover 3-4 inches.Bring to a boil,simmer 11/2 -2 hours until beans are tender,may need to add additional water.
