Black Beans with a Kick

Beans are an important part of my plant-based lifestyle, so I’ve found many ways to keep them interesting and flavorful! Enjoy this quick, simple recipe.

Serves: 2

Vegan, Gluten Free, Soy Free


1 15 oz can organic black beans (look for a trusted brand, such as Eden brand beans so you can get a can with no BPAs in it.)

1 dash of cumin

Small sprinkle of cayenne pepper

Juice from 1/2 a small lime

Small pinch of salt



Soak the beans for several hours. Place in pan with a bit of water. Bring to a boil and add cumin, cayenne pepper, and lime juice. Stir and add a sprinkle of salt before you turn off the stove. This recipe only takes a few minutes to make as you are simply heating the beans. Serve with brown rice, guacamole, and a small salad. Enjoy!
