I only ever really thought about Black beans as a side to go with a burrito bowl or on a burrito but these guys are so versatile, full of flavour and so textured that they are easily deserving of being a main meal.

A simple Black bean stew made with the most basic ingredients like garlic, onion chilli, stock, coriander and you suddenly have a bowl of savoury perfection.

Throw in a dollop of guac, sour cream and a wholemeal wrap or pitta and you have a feast!

They’re a staple in Latin American, Cajun and Creole cuisine and they come bursting with health benefits that make them the perfect addition to any diet.

They’re a great source of protein, fibre, antioxidants and micronutrients.

This recipe is cooked in minutes and makes for a big tasting dish that completely satisfies and being low GI, it helps to stabilise blood sugars that lead to sugar cravings!
