Our vegetarian recipe features black beans along with onions, tomatoes and peppers that all get sauteed directly in the cooker. Black beans provide digestion-promoting fiber, while tomatoes offer immunity-boosting vitamin C.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 4

  • 1 lb Dry Black Beans
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 medium red bell pepper

DIRECTIONS

1 Rinse beans, drain in a colander and rinse again. Place in slow cooker with 4 cups water. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on high for about 3-4 hours, then test doneness. If the beans aren’t soft all the way through and the water is low, add more and cook another hour and test again. If using a can of beans, rinse then cook over medium heat with ¼ cup water for 8 minutes. Reserve beans.
2 Spray inside of the slow cooker with olive or vegetable oil spray. If your slow cooker has a sauté setting, turn on and add onion, tomatoes, peppers, salt and pepper. Cook about 8 minutes, stirring halfway through. If you don’t have a sauté setting, turn on high and cook for 2 to 3 hours and warm beans in a separate pot on low 5 minutes before the vegetables are ready.
3 Steam tortillas in a tortilla steamer or between two dampened paper towels for 30 seconds.
