How to use black beans

Black beans are one of my favourite ingredients – I’m sure you know that by now. I have a number of easy black bean recipes you should give a try but more about those shortly.

Some of the recipes I have that use black beans are:

What are black beans?

Black beans are versatile and packed with protein, fibre and iron, making them a great addition to your diet. You may also come across them in recipes as black turtle beans. All turtle beans are black beans, but not all black beans are turtle beans as the turtle variety tend to be smaller in size and milder in flavour. However, any black bean can be used within this recipe.

For ease, this recipe used tinned black beans, although you can use dried if you prefer. Having said that, they will need to be soaked before use, so tinned are much simpler and quicker for this delicious dish.

A great summer meal

During the summer months, I often crave a meal jam-packed with flavour but lighter on my stomach. This recipe ticks those boxes. One tortilla wrap containing the egg and black bean mixture is enough to satisfy me. It’s also a great shout for a lunch meal during the winter months when you want something warm.

It’s a simple-to-make recipe and doesn’t take too long at all. My favourite kind of meal – tasty but quick and easy!

If you use my salsa recipe then the only syns in this black bean burritos recipe are for the cheese and the tortillas.

Queso Fresco cheese is quite difficult to get in the UK so I would recommend using soft goats cheese as an alternative. The syns for soft goats cheese are 3.5 syns per 25g (approx). So the cheese in this recipe as a whole amount to a total of 7.5 syns (approx).

Tortillas vary significantly in the syns you have to count them as depending on the size and brand. In general, a wholemeal tortilla is 8.5 syns (approx) and a white tortilla 9 syns (approx).

For this reason, I would suggest being safe I would count this recipe as 11 syns per portion but as always the choice is yours.
