Caribbean Black Beans and Rice

February 10, 2015

Author Notes: By rinsing and draining the black beans before cooking, you remove a large amount of sodium. For an extra pop of flavour, sprinkle a little vinegar and a few raw white onions on top of the finished beans. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: Healthline
