Tasty Tuesday

I find myself obsessed with black beans lately.. I actually find myself obsessed with all differnt kinds of beans.. I think they make great side dishes or sometimes I eat them as my dinner. So for todays edition of Tasty Tuesday I bring to you
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 carrots, chopped
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 cups vegetable stock
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (8.75 ounce) can whole kernel corn
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, garlic, and carrots, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until onion is softened. Add chili powder and cumin; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add stock, 1 can of the beans, corn, and pepper; bring to boil.
Meanwhile, in food processor or blender, puree together tomatoes and remaining can of beans; add to pot. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until carrots are tender.
Make sure you check out New Mommy Rant for another yummy recipe... We hope you enjoy!

i love beans. but i don't eat them because of the consequences, which i have come to learn, are worst than the pleasure of eating beans. so i am bean-free unless ofcourse you're talking about american baked beans. I canNOT say no to those. i'll stay home for a few days after that though, and suffer the consequences alone. hehe
