African Beans
25 mins (prep 10, cooking 15)
12 ingredients
2-4 servings
Nb. The recipe calls for dry beans, I use tinned, approx. 420gr size, and if I haven’t got black-eyed I use cannelli or borlotti or any smallish white bean; cuts down on cooking timeThis is a vegetarian dish intended as a main meal, but it makes a great side dish as well. A good variation is to add sautéed sliced mushrooms with the onions, and I usually add garlic as well. Its good served immediately, but if you refrigerate and heat the next day its even better.
