I am actually quite fond of beans and peas even though people tend to fear having too much of them for ahem… certain reasons. I think they’re filling, packed with flavour, and best of all, they are nutritious. Black beans are a super food to me because they are so good for you and best of all, aren't expensive! They're a great source of protein, fibre, iron, and multiple other necessary vitamins. They are great for people trying to regulate their blood sugar levels and they are also the highest in antioxidants out of the bean family I believe. I started off making this as a soup but the longer you keep this in the slow cooker/ on the stove, it becomes more like a heart warming, perfect for winter, vegetarian stew. This is especially true if you mash up some of the veggies and beans (I didn’t but you can!). So enjoy this over the weekend with some whole grain biscuits/buns if needed and let me know how it turned out. It is SUCH an easy recipe to prep and forget about as the slow cooker does its job, however, you can always make it stove top of course. The real benefit to making this soup/stew? You won't feel guilty when you go for seconds.
