Cook about a cup of black beans like you normally would or use canned beans, you canned bean eater :) When they are soft, (or, open the can) drain them then put the cooked beans and about a tbs of the cooking liquid back in the cooking pan and get them real hot. Add a little more liquid if it starts to get too dry. Add one chopped clove of garlic and 1 tbs vegan butter or oil (optional) and a pinch of salt (optional).
Put the pan on a hot burner that has been turned off (as if you were cooking rice ) with a tight lid and let it set for about 20 minutes.
Serve with rice , tortilla , salsa, guacamole and vegan sour cream (made from cashews).
