Frijoles de la Olla

Sweet pinto beans simmered in a rich, garlicky broth are comforting and make a delicious complete meal. I adapted the recipe from vegan chef Roberto Martin’s book, Vegan Cooking for Carnivores. Preparing the meal in a jar ahead of time makes it really easy to whip up this dish. It borders on a soup, which I love, and gets better after it sits for a while. Jar size: 3½ to 4 cups

    Wonderfully easy to follow but i would add extra time (about 5min.) to the beans. This came out firm to bite and im used to beans being completely soft and mashable with a fork.
