Welcome to Day #2 of Radar Love's recipe bonanza! We started with yesterday's mojito recipe and will continue with one recipe a day through the end of the week. Today we'll divulge the top secret recipe that Tia Sara has been keeping under lock & key until this very moment. Without further ado, I present you with...
Tia Sara's easy Black Beans
4 cans of cooked black beans
1 large onion (chopped)
1 large red pepper (chopped)
4 cloves of garlic (minced)
2/3 cups olive oil
4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp oregano
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp white sugar
1 slug vinegar
1 slug dry white wine
1 additional slug olive oil
Sauté the onion, red pepper, garlic in the olive oil until onions and garlic are soft (but not brown).Add sautéed vegetables to canned beans or previously soaked and cooked beans in a large pot.
Take a few ladles of bean mixture and put it through a blender or food processor, then add it back into the beans. Throw in a bay leaf. Season with salt, black pepper and oregano. Add sugar, vinegar, white wine and heat to a simmer. Add a slug of olive oil before serving.
Serve over regular cooked white rice.
If you make this and are happy with the results, then you might want to check out Tia Sara's feedback in yesterday's comments on how to improve on Tio Tribi's mojitos. Does sibling rivalry ever end??? Anyway - Enjoy!!!
As for other borrowed stuff, both items are related to the pandemic that is currently sweeping the world and borrowed from e-mails I have received.
#1: A dumb joke
Lots of people said that a black man would be president when pigs fly.
Then 100 days into Obama's administration and wham!! Pig's flu!
That's it for today! More goodies tomorrow.
Lots of love,
Titi and Radar
