viva black beans


1 head of broccoli, chopped roughly
5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 large can of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 medium, fresh-roasted green chiles (this is me being a snob about living in New Mexico; you can substitute chipotle or jalapeno or omit altogether), chopped
1 mango, medium firmness, diced
1 tomato, diced
1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
dash of dark sesame oil, omit if using chipotle peppers
juice of one lime
some slivers of carrot
avocado, sliced (optional)


blanch and drain broccoli, set aside. on medium-high heat in a little bit of olive oil, saute garlic briefly, add drained and rinsed black beans, broccoli, green chiles, mango and tomato. cook until mango is soft, add orange juice concentrate, sesame oil and lime, remove from heat. stir in carrots. serve over rice, in a tortilla, or as a side dish. use avocado slices as garnish.
