Brazilian black bean stew

Black beans are an excellent source of protein. When paired with rice, they provide all of the essential amino acids needed by the body to build and repair muscles.


1 tin of black beans, drained

3 large tomatoes, finely diced

1 onion, finely diced

3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1 tsp dried cumin

1 tsp dried coriander

½ teaspoon chilli powder or flakes

Juice of one orange

Zest of one orange

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 red pepper, finely diced

1 large handful fresh coriander, chopped



1. In a large frying pan or sauce pan, heat the coconut oil and add the garlic and onion. Sauté for a few minutes until soft.

2. Add the spices, tomatoes and pepper and cook over a medium heat for a few minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Next add the beans, the orange zest and juice and salt and pepper to taste. Cook over a low heat for around 10-15 minutes.

4. Just before serving, stir in the fresh coriander. Serve with brown rice or corn tortillas.
