The 3 C’s of Beans

Since I’m on an acronym roll, I figured I’d share my 3 C’s of beans: cayenne, coriander and cumin. It’s simple, here’s how:

Saute over medium heat in 1 teaspoon grapeseed oil until soft:

1 small onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/4 red pepper, chopped

Add and mix thoroughly:

1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon cumin

Add 1 can of your favorite beans (black) liquid and all and continue to simmer until the mixture is the consistency you like. Salt to taste – remember to salt at the end or your beans will be tough (whatever that means cause I always salt everything just before I eat it). Viola! I like them with a toasted sprouted wheat bagel and a salad.

May not seem like such a big deal to YOU, but now I can make Old Town Cafe‘s beans at home. So there.

PS This is the small print…I sometimes add a 4th c – cocoa.
