Brazilian Black Beans

Black beans are loaded with fiber. Try this over white rice with chimichurri sauce, for wonderful fusion of flavors from Argentina and Brazil.

For the sofrito:

  • 1 large minced white onion
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 3/4 bunch of parsley finely chopped (no stems)
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
