• 1 can black beans rinsed
  • 1 can tomato sauce flavored garlic and oregano flavored
  • Half of yellow onion
  • water (or veggie broth)
  • spices to taste: garlic, cumin, thyme, sea salt, fresh ground pepper


Toast herbs in a skillet till warmed through add onion and a little oil to pan. Cook to desire. Set aside Next add a little water or broth to your beans. Stir well. Add tomato sauce and onion/spice mixture. Heat on medium heat to help soften beans a little. Talk out about half (or more or less depending on the texture you like) and put in a blender. I used liquefy and got a very velvety texture. After blended add back to pot and continue cooking a little longer.

**Adding some guacamole as well as some soy cheese sometimes can be nice touch. I usually eat this with whole wheat pita toasts or crackers. (Just whole wheat vegan pita bread cut up and toasted in oven with lots of herbs and olive oil.)

I never measure much of anything when I cook, just not my philosophy. If you unsure you can add herbs once you have began cooking the beans. The ol’ try and taste method.

Serves: 4 – 7
