5 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 tsp. red pepper flakes

1 tsp. cumin

½  tsp. (or to taste) natural sea salt

1 Tbs. lime juice


Combine water, vegetable broth, beans, yellow and green onions, chili, garlic, pepper flakes and cumin. Bring to boil briefly. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 to 2 ½ hours, until tender. Watch the pot carefully the last ½ hour of cooking so that the beans don’t stick and burn.
