Black Bean Vegetable Stew

By now it is no secret that I love black beans. Even though it is now officially summer in North Brooklyn I still enjoy a good tasting black bean recipe. This stew is definitely vegan and vegetarian. Add your favorite bread and the eating is easy. Enjoy.


1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 onion, diced

1 cup canned crushed tomatoes

3/4 lb broccoli florets

1-1/2 cups canned black beans

1 tbsp rosemary, or 3 Tbsp fresh, chopped


Heat oil in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Sauté onion 5-6 minutes or until translucent. Stir in broccoli, tomato and black beans. Season with rosemary, vinegar, and salt to taste. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 10 minutes or until broccoli is tender.

Serves 4
