My Husband's Favorite Breakfast

Scrambled Eggs with Refried Black Beans
My husband is from Guatemala, where black beans is a staple in their daily diet. They eat refried black beans with bread for breakfast, and rice and black beans for lunch and dinner. He loves them with everything, it's like ketchup to him. Here is how I make the Band-friendly version, it's not quite like his mother's (heaven forbid), but they are still very tasty.

Refried Black Beans

1 can black beans
1/2-1 Tbs canola oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2-1 cup water
salt to taste

Drain a little bit of liquid from canned black beans. Then blend in food processor to the constistancy you like. I like them chuncky, the hubby likes them smooth. Heat oil, saute garlic and onion. Add pureed beans. Stir over medium heat and let them. Stir in water until beans are creamy. Add salt to taste.

  1. Just found your blog! It looks amazing, I am on liquids so I will come back a day when I can look at food :)

  2. I just found this web site and I love it!!! I was banded Dec 18, 2012 and I had a hard time trying to put meals together and this is perfect!! Because it gives me something that I can enjoy and have something different to eat instead of the boring foods that I have been eating every day. This is so perfect!! I know it took a lot of your time to put this web page together and I know we all banders appreciate it. Thank you. Debbie
