The other day something went terribly and inexplicably wrong with a pot of black beans. We ended up with onions floating atop murky water and a layer of spent beans at the bottom of the pot. I thought the best thing would be to puree them and ‘re-fry’ them.
After several cracks (no pun intended) about how the beans looked the same in the pot as how they’d look once we pooped them out, we tasted them and decided they were edible. Arlene made some tostones and salad to go with the bean mush. She topped a hapless toston with the bean slurry and salad as you can see in the picture below.
It was good considering how bad it looked.
Not a recipe we’d recommend, unless something goes terribly wrong with your cooking.
