Mushroom and Black Bean Tortilla Casserole
Sauteed mushrooms, cooked black beans, and store-bought salsa are layered with corn tortillas in a baking dish to create this Tex-Mex-inspired casserole.
Black-Bean and Sweet-Potato Stew
This satisfying vegetarian stew is ready in about an hour—and more than half that time is hands-off. Opting for canned beans instead of dried put this recipe on the fast-track, and velvety, earthy sweet potatoes, nutty quinoa, and smoky chipotle peppers provided complexity and depth without the need for an all-day simmer.
Zucchini and black beans come together for a juicy and satisfying taco punctuated by fresh, creamy toppings.
Spicy Black Bean Soup
For a crunchy topping to this flavorful soup, cut corn tortillas into strips, toss with a little oil, then bake at 350 degrees until crisp.
Brown Rice and Black Beans
A pairing for the ages -- and a beautifully balanced source of protein -- rice and black beans crackle with flavor, thanks to jalapeno, onions, and garlic. In this version, hearty long-grain brown rice stands in for the traditional white variety, offering an extra measure of substance.
Black Bean, Cucumber, and Feta Salad
Pressure-cooked black beans (time to break out that Instant Pot!) meet cool cucumbers and bright cilantro, lime, and feta in this refreshing side dish that's ideal year-round. This recipe appears in our cookbook "Martha Stewart's Pressure Cooker" (Clarkson Potter).
