“A flavorful bean dish that works great as a side or a stand alone meal. I borrowed this recipe from PCC Natural Food Market. It’s also Vegetarian, Vegan, Corn-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free, Gluten-free, Peanut-free, Soy-free, Tree nut-free and Wheat-free but NOT flavor-free! Very full flavored and delicious”
