I made “black eye bean recipe” the other day, and it was so good. This is another recipe my mum use to make us in Cyprus and it’s easy to make and so tasty. Eating is a necessity but cooking is an art with herbe.co. I have enclosed 2 recipes with Black Eye Beans.
2 cups dried black eye beans, soaked overnight or 2 cans Eden black eye beans
4 cups of water (make sure the beans are covered)
2 cups fresh organic spinach (optional)
1 medium chopped onion (optional)
Bragg Sea Kelp Delight Seasoning (24 herbs & spices)
Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil
Balsamic Vinegar of Modena (Trader Giotto’s) or 2 freshly squeeze lemon juice
Parsley or cylantro (optional)
Place the dried beans in a large pot and cover with about 4 inches of water overnight then drain and rinse
In a pot combine the black eye beans with just enough water to cover the beans. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover and simmer until beans are tender but not mushy about 25 to 30 minutes.
If you have in the refrigerator spinach, chop the spinach, small onion and fry in olive oil.
I use chopped parsley (no need to fry it), sprinkle on top of the black eye beans with walnuts.
The olive oil with the Balsamic vinegar was scruptious.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with crakers or bread.
