Go-To Black Beans



  • Author: From Gwyneth Paltrow’s It’s All Good Cookbook


  • 1 can black beans with their liquid
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and left whole
  • 68 fresh cilantro sprigs, leaves, and stems
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper


Place the black beans with their liquid, olive oil, garlic, a pinch of sea salt and some black pepper into a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and then once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Remove the cilantro sprigs (and garlic cloves if you don’t want a big bite of garlic). Use them or let them cool and store in the fridge for the week.
