Banana Black Beans

Notes: This sounds weird but it tastes great and is very fast. And it uses ingredients I almost always have on hand. It’s my favorite way to eat beans and rice!

Bannana Black Beans ★★★★★ Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins | Makes: 2-4 servings | Difficulty: Easy


1 small onion

2 cups cooked black beans (if using canned, rinse well)

1/2 cup coconut milk (light can be used)

1/4 cup plain nondairy milk (I use almond)

2 stalks green onion, diced

2 heaping teaspoons chili powder

1 large banana, chopped into

1/2″ half moon pieces Avocado (optional)

Salsa (optional)

Directions: Cook onion until soft. Add cooked black beans, coconut milk and nondairy milk and heat on medium-low for about 3-4 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add chopped green onion and chili powder, and allow the liquid to reduce and become bubbly, still stirring occasionally. Add chopped banana, stir, and allow to heat through. (banana shouldn’t be added too early or else the pieces lose their shape and become mushy). Add more milk(s), if needed. Served on a bed of brown rice and top with avocado and salsa.
