Cuban-Style Black Beans & Plantains over Oatmeal 1 Cup (s) Quaker ® Steel Cut Oats 2 Tablespoon (s) Olive Oil 2 piece (s) firm, ripe plantains, peeled and sliced into 2 1 Whole large onion, diced 1 Whole green pepper, diced 1/2 Cup (s) chicken broth/stock 2 15 Ounce (s) cans of black beans, rinsed. This Cuban-influenced dish takes oatmeal to the dinner table with delicious savory flavors. Ingredients: 1 cup Quaker Steel Cut Oats; 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided; 2 pieces firm, ripe plantain, peeled and sliced into 2-inch pieces; 1 large onion, diced; 1 green bell pepper, diced; 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans. This super-simple technique spikes canned black beans with fresh juices, garlic and chile, then tops them with sweet plantains.

Look for the ripest, blackest plantains. Soak the beans overnight in a large pot. In the morning, drain the water and set beans aside. In a large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the onion and sauté.

These don’t taste like the black beans I had all the time when I lived in Miami. These are very sweet which I don’t like when it comes to black beans. I don’t like throwing food away so I’m going to add hot sausage to it and hope that makes the taste better. 8/12/06 Cuban Style Black Beans Ingredients • 450 gram of black beans • 2400 ml of water • 4 spoons of oil • 1 onion • 6 cloves of garlic • 1medium pepper • 1bay leaf • 1 teaspoon of cumin • ½ teaspoon of milled oregano • ½ spoon of milled bay leaf • 1 tablespoonful of dry wine.

Cuban-Style Black Beans & Plantains over Oatmeal ; Farmer’s Cheese Spinach Frittata ; French Toast ; Frittata with Grated Zucchini, Goat Cheese and Dill ; Gluten Free Granola. Make ahead: The beans can be prepared several days ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator or frozen for up to 1 month. Using canned beans: 3 (15-ounce) cans of low-sodium black beans can be used in place of the dry black beans.

Just add the soffritto and spices to the canned beans as you are heating them up. Heat 1 Tbs. oil over medium heat, and saute yellow onion and green pepper 7 to 10 minutes, or until onion turns golden. Add vegetable bouillon, beans, cumin, salt and pepper, and cook 5 minutes more, or until beans are heated through.

If the sauce needs a little thickening, mash some of the beans.

  • 8 cups of water? I had my beans cooking for over 2 hours and it just looked like black beans in water with sofrito floating around…. Why is mine not reducing into the sauce?

  • Hi Naomi, we have the same name;) and vegan:). I had a question. How much water do you use? Because I’ve tried using the instant pot for making black beans but it comes out soupy.

  • Nydia nice recipe. I will try it. But for a quick and delicious black beans Cuban style, I buy El Ebro in a can, yes, they are amazing. I add a few spices and other goodies and it tastes amazing! P.S. try it with some tabasco…yum.

  • My first attempt at cooking black beans and they were amazing and the hubby loved them. I do have to admit I tasted the beans after cooking for 30 min and the I loved the flavor so much I was affraid to add the vinagar and brown sugar thinking the flavor would change, so we ate them just the way they were. Next time I will try add the vinagar and sugar. The recipe was so easy to follow. You now have a new subscriber to your channel. I can’t wait to try something else of yours! Thanks!

  • Dear 99cent Chef: Can you cook this recipe with a Lodge cast iron pot or is there another type of pot that you recommend? Thank you and love the video!

  • Great production, great recipe! I do have a question though. I believe your recipe calls for dried beans. Isn’t there the problem of indigestible substances which are generally removed when dried beans are soaked for at least 8 hours?

  • I’ve never seen such a creative cooking video like this one. Wow. Makes cooking seem so fast and easy as the ingredients just get cleaned and chopped by themselves:)
    (Bet it was 10x more work then just shooting a simple video, but came out really cool.) Thanks for the video and will try the recipe for sure.

  • I always appreciate the work you do to make your food videos more entertaining. I love black beans and rice, I added this one to my food playlist, big thumbs up!

  • There’s no need for the overnight procedure if you’re using a pressure cooker. Just rinse the beans and let them sit on water for an hour maybe less, until they gorge and float.

  • Ahhhhhh lived in Tampa For ten years and fell in love with Cuban food. Now I am further north and can only try to replicate the food I miss! I am so happy!

  • I’m not much of a chef myself, but being a huge black bean with white rice fan since I was young Cuban Latino I’ma try this recipe out one of these days for a dinner night, gracias for the great video!������

  • I know many people do it but I just can’t cook with the liquid the beans come in. I always rinse them. I prefer to use vegetable broth with a bouillon cube instead of the canned liquid.

  • I have made this three times now and I swear it is THE BEST! Only thing I do differently is add more garlic in the beginning. We love garlic. Thank you Chef Zee!

  • In which kind of cups do I have to measure? Espresso cups, tea cups, cappucino cups, big tea mugs? Can’t you just specify it in millimeters? Just use the fricking metric system like reasonable people do.

  • Similar to how I make my quick beans with one exception. Instead of the red wine vinegar, I use red wine. BTW I put chorizo in mine too when I cook it from scratch.

  • Thanks for the recipe. Nutritional yeast aka “nooch” can be used as a vegan substitute for sopita or chicken bouillon you can sometimes specifically find a “chicken flavored” vegan broth base made from this.

  • I love how you use the garlic at the end. And Im glad you did a contemporary weeknight recipe for working people (instead of an abuela recipe from 1963)

  • Love your recipe. Me salieron deliciosos! I added aji panca paste at the beginning which is a peruvian pepper. I didn’t have wine vinegar though.

  • Love black beans. My mother always made them.They were my family’s favorite ����. She did added the brown sugar and the vinegar but not the cumin. When I make them for my kids I love putting the cumin too. It gives it a different flavor.

  • Just made this! So yummy!! I modified a bit. I used the veggie buillon cube (I’m pescatarian), seasoned the oil in the pan with my homemade marinade before adding the.onions and peppers (coarsely chopped because I like it chunky, added more water to make it thinner because I love how it coats my brown rice, added coriander, and chipotle chili. That rice wine vinegar and brown sugar was such a nice touch! I’ll add cilantro next time to take the flavor to another level. Super easy and yummy recipe. Quick dinner that everyone will enjoy. But this is bomb for all of the plant-based brok college students out there. Thank you!!!

  • After 22 years of living in Miami I recently moved away. This super easy recipe was AMAZING and brought me right back home to the food I love the most from Miami!! Thank you so much for posting this.

  • Great recipe especially adding the garlic at the end but another great tip is to use Dried Cilantro In the beginning and freshly chopped cilantro at the end.

  • Un saludo desde Francia! Vengo de hacer vuestra receta…y esta super rica! La recomiendo. He añadido pimienta de cayena.. Muchas gracias

  • I’m gonna make these. But I think I want to boil some chicken thighs down, shred it & then add the beans to the stock with chicken. And then I have to add some heat with jalepenos or crushed peppers.

  • My father is from Cuba, sancti spiritus las villas, and he has passed away over 20 years ago, I remember he use to put bacon bits in his black bean dish:)

  • Youtube channel ‘Scoff;chef called Pamela made this and she kept the water you soak the beans in, surely that is wrong is it not? You threw the over night water, is that because it contains residue or bitter taste? I’m confused! Should I throw the over night water? Looking forward to making this once I know! Thanks!

  • Thanks! I’m going to make it! Looks delicious! How much water do you soak overnight though? I hope you seen this soon! I’m craving! ��

  • Omg I found out what one the ingredient was that I couldn’t understand. Followed through ur step. And my beans came out Fabulous. ☺️���� I’m to happy. Living in Texas it’s hard to find authentic Cuban food. I’m so happy I found your video. Thank you for sharing.

  • Thanks, Nydia!!  Delicioso!!!!  I confess that I don’t put  wine in mine, and put a little more sugar!!  hee hee. I was born in Miami Beach of Cuban & Puerto Rican parents! Viva Miami y Viva Nydia!!!  Hugs….:)

  • I am about to move to my first house with my fiance and I am learning how to cook good authentic cuban food through your channel, thank you!

  • WOW!so yummy Sweetheart but no cervesa for me I let it go a long time ago it’s go good with some home-made lemon did Awesome alvocado also good in this dish with some sausa on the side.mmmmm�� Tfsharing luvv��������������������������������������������

  • can u give me a brake down of how much and what everything is that u used i have made mamy cuban beans but none of them was good enough so im hopibg your recipe is better and can make me smile lol thanks again for replying to my questions

  • Cuban ladies are not the only ones that mash garlic in pestle and mortar. Ladies all thruout Mexico, Central America and down South majacan ajo. Mis padres son de Colombia y en cosina Colombiana siempre se usa mashed garlic.

  • Wow, you are a good cook. I think the way to tell a good cook are the spice mixes and the choice of ingredients together-which should play like an orchestra in our mouths. Thank you-I am going to cook this for lunch.

  • Nydia, gracias por todo!! I am with a Cuban man and he loooooves his mother’s beans. I tried to make these once before and it was a complete disaster (we don’t use many beans like this in Scandinavian cooking). Following your instruction was easy and resulted in very yummy beans! I will be making more of your videos and hope I can learn more Cuban cooking for our future family. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

  • Perfecto, just like my Tia Chacha used to make, delicious-hearty-healthy! I like mine served over rice, topped with onion, and with avocado/watercress salad:)

  • Hola nydia, just finished making the black beans, only difference was I used a pressure cooker to soften the beans. Question how much water should I pour out before I add the sofrito??

  • I’ve never been a fan of black beans, but thinking about it it’s probably because I don’t think I’ve ever had them actually spiced and flavored up. I will try this… I’ll be skeptical until I taste the final product… but I’ll try them. Ahh who am I kidding? You’ve never led me astray before!

  • Hola! I just made the beans but the liquid is still thin not thick what did I do wrong? What can I do to make it thicker at this point?

  • Hi encanta tus recetas y lo facil que son seguir las instrucciones…solo seria bueno poner la lista de los ingredientes abajo del video.gracias y sigue cocinando para que no se pierda nuestra SAZON.

  • Me encanta como esta señora preseva la receta al pie de la letra y a la ves lo transforma en algo super rapido y facil de hacer llevo poco tiempo en el arte culinario pero me fascina, me acuerda mucho al sazon de mi abuelita, muchas gracias por sus recetas siga asi se le agradece!!! Saludos desde Englaterra de otra cubanita…��

  • There is a Cuban restaurant in my area that makes black beans and rice that are so good I dream about them sometimes. Can’t wait to try this when I get up the nerve to brave the grocery store!

  • I wanted to come in here say this was wrong and not authentic, but then I watched it and the recipe is spot on. Thats about how my grandmother made it. Except for the part where you served it without rice!

  • Hi Nydia! Just finished these beans for dinner and they came out incredible. I think the vinegar had something to do with it cause I had used the regular white one but the apple cider gave it a nice touch. Every time I try one of your recipes we all love it! Thank you so much for sharing!

  • Yes, I just made it and its very tasty!!! Much better than how i used to do it. I didnt even have all the ingredient but yet its tasty. Many thanks Chef Zee!

  • Hi, I love your videos.  I have had these beans in Cuba and have been looking for a good recipe.  This one looks perfect.  Can I use something to replace the dry cooking wine?  Any suggestions?  Thank you:)

  • Once you try black beans, you never go back to any other! You have my Grandma;s recipe down pat! I could almost smell the beans cooking in my house!

  • Great video! I lived in Tampa for almost 15 yrs. and now live in Seattle. I  miss the great food and really appreciate your recipes and your style! Go Tampa home of the original cuban sandwich!! Thanks!!!!!

  • Sra Nydia sus videos son muy buenos, muy buena calidad del video y bien explicados, soy colombiana pero vivo en USA y me encanta cocinar platos internacionales, pero porque solo habla en ingles?? y hasta los ingredientes los dice en ingles?? he visto otros de sus videos y explica casi todo en espanol y poquito ingles…:( ojala vuelva a hacer videos en espanol o por lo menos con subtitulos en espanol o explique la preparacion e ingredientes en espanol donde dice “about”..MIL GRACIAS:)

  • love your videos!! my mom is from Pinar del Río, so i am used to all this delicious food!! Keep up the good work and great cooking!!
