There's a vegetarian place I love that makes excellent black beans
They add just a bit of cinnamon to it. It really brings out the flavor.
Actually, it's a mixutre of black and red beans.
It's called The Slacker. You get it over brown rice. I have them add grilled onions and diced tomatoes on top, and cornbread.
It's the cheapest thing on their menu, at $6.50 and it's enough for 2 meals.
Another favoriete of mine is the Ruby Reuben. It's made with beets with a kale & cabbage kraut one the side. Swiss cheese melted on it and some amazing dressing. Made on grilled sourdough rye
