RECIPE – Italian Black Beans & Rice


  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 slices bacon (or turkey bacon)
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • salt & pepper to taste


In a saucepan or deep skillet, saute onion in olive oil. Add chopped garlic when onion is halfway cooked. After several more minutes, add bacon and cook all until onion is soft, but not browned.

Add black beans, bring to a boil, then simmer. After simmering for 10 – 20 minutes, add spices and mix in. Let cook another 5 – 10 minutes to desired doneness. Serve over white or yellow rice.
