Black beans (also called turtle beans) are popular in Latin American cooking. They are rich, creamy and high in protein.

They can be blended to a refried bean paste which is the crux of a good nacho or quesadilla platter; they also make a great addition to chillis and wraps. 

Cooking with Black Turtle Beans

Rinse the beans thoroughly, then pre-soak overnight – place in a pan and cover with 5cm of water. Drain the beans the next day and rinse. Preparing this way will really improve their texture and reduce the cooking time.

To make refried black beans, saute ½ an onion, 1 minced garlic clove and ½ tsp cumin for 5 minutes, then add 450g of the presoaked, drained beans and 2l of water.

Cover the pot and simmer for 2 hours. Then add 2tsp salt and a handful of chopped coriander (leaves and stems) and cook, uncovered for another 30 mins.

Then, fry 1tsp chilli powder, ½ tsp ground cumin, ½ onion and 1 minced garlic clove in some oil for a few minutes, add the beans (and liquid), mash and enjoy in nachos or quesadillas!
