Refried Beans

  • 2-15 oz Can of Kidney Beans
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Large Onion, chopped
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1 Tsp Cumin
  • 1 Tsp Sea Salt
  • ½ Cup Orange Juice (or water, if low carb)
  • Handful of Fresh Cilantro, chopped
Drain one of the cans of beans. Mash all beans (with bean liquid from one can), either with a food processor or a potato masher (you’ll need strength). Heat olive oil over medium flame in a large pan. Sauté onions for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add garlic, cumin, and sea salt. Sauté, stirring occasionally, for another 3-4 minutes. Stir in mashed beans and juice/water. Simmer for another ten minutes, stirring often. Serve with chopped cilantro.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
