Crockpot Black Beans

This recipe took me a long time to perfect since I first started cooking vegan recipes. I took bits and pieces of other recipes I found online and cookbooks and then created my own method.

This is great to use for meal prepping. During my bikini prep I always did my black beans this way. 

YIELD: Serves 12-13

PREP TIME: 20 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 6 hrs 30 minutes



1 lb black beans (2 cups), sorted, rinsed

1 large onions, chopped (1 cup)

1 large bell pepper, chopped (1 1/2 cups)

5 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 diced tomato or a few grape tomatos sliced in half

6 cups of water or 4 cups water plus 2 cups vegetable broth

1 tbs oregano

1 tbs cumin

1 tsp salt, add more to taste if needed

1 tsp pepper

2 tsp Creole Seasoning (optional)



In 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker, mix all ingredients except rice.

Cover; cook on High heat setting 6 1/2 hours.



If it's too much, the great thing with beans is you can always freeze them and save them for later use.
