Sliced & Diced: Black Beans

Sliced & Diced from Once A Month Meals **Better late than never, right? So sorry for the delay. This weekend has been a bit of a medical hoopla for our family (Tricia’s). My apologies. Please note you can link up your black bean recipes over the course of the next week. And further apologies because I was apparently under the influence of meds when I took the photos of black beans (oops). Everyone of them was BLURRY! I’ll add photos soon.

Honestly, prior to the integration of the Whole Foods and Vegetarian menus I had rarely used black beans in our past menus. But the more menus I add the more I see black beans making a regular appearance on our menus.

Additionally, Katie of a Kitchen Stewardships Everything Beans Book was an added encouragement to do some comparison and contrasting of black beans. And from what I can tell, black beans will be a regular part of monthly menus from here on out. So I haven’t had the chance to do all the beans yet, but for black beans here are the equivalents and yields:

    Thanks for hosting the link up…I love cooking with black beans.

  5. [...] but canned back beans that are well rinsed also works well in this salad.  Tricia just did a Sliced and Diced post on black beans and found that a can of black beans equals 1 3/4 cups cooked beans.  Thanks, Tricia! Gluten Free [...]
