Re: Black turtle beans

This is one of my favorites - adapted from Moosewood Cookbook:

Brazilian Black Beans

1 lb black beans, soaked at least 4 hours preferably overnight
3 cups chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, crushed or more if you like
2 tbs cumin
1 carrot, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1-2 cups diced tomatoes, optional
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, optional
salt and pepper and cayenne pepper to taste

Place beans in large pot with water to cover and bring to a boil, cover and 
simmer about an hour (add more water if it seems to be getting low). Add all 
the veggies. Cover and simmer another half hour or until beans and veggies 
are tender. Add orange juice and cilantro and simmer a bit more. Add salt and 
peppers to taste. Serve with dollops of ff sour cream or roll up in a 
tortilla with salsa and lettuce . . .
