Garlic Cumin Black Beans 蒜煮孜然黑豆

A can in need is a can indeed. Canned beans, I meant.

Though bulk dried beans is most budget-friendly and relatively healthier (without potential harmful effects from the can inner-wall lining), it is not a time-saver with soaking and boiling taking more than 1 hour in total. With canned beans, the prep and cooking time is reduced by almost 80% and when you have to prepare a meal in about 30 minutes or less, canned beans is a god-send.

Garlic-Cumin Black Beans, avocado and fried egg - how does that sound as burrito filling? Pair it with a hearty, wholesome and nutritious Tofu, Eggplant, Butternut Squash Curry for a perfect meal, lunch and/or dinner and if you want - breakfast!
