Black beans, also known as turtle beans, are a special support for digestive system health. Since they have a rich amount of iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc, black beans contribute to maintain healthy bones.

Black beans have a strong amount of phytonutrients and they are high in antioxidants, for this reason are considered as one of the world’s healthiest foods.

They can be prepared with rice, pasta or as salads, side dish, purée or sauce.

Haitian Chili Black Beans Sauce can be amazing cold or hot to taste with different dishes.

To make this spicy recipe  soak the black beans one day in advance.

Haitian Chili Black Beans Sauce can be amazing cold or hot to taste with different dishes.

I wash black beans with cold water and soak them in plenty of fresh water in a large bowl for 12 hours or 1 day before.

Then I drain the water from the black beans and discard it (I use this water to feed the plants).

Place the beans in a pan and add cold water since to cover. Bring beans to a boil with cloves and salt on medium-low heat for 1 hour until tender.

I add water, if necessary, during the boiling process.

When black beans are ready I drain the beans and reserve the liquid.

I start to make a purée with the hand blender, adding pepper, thyme, chive, parsley, garlic cloves, coconut oil and habanero (since I can’t find scotch bonnet I use habanero).

Finally I add the reserved liquid and blend the purée till it becomes a creamy sauce (I use to stock the remaining cooking liquid because it can be used for risotto or other recipes).

Personally I prefer it cold so I let it cool and than serve it in a bowl.

Haitian Chili Black Beans Sauce if cold is perfect to spread on bread, or like salad dressing with fresh vegetables.

For those who prefer it hot, simply return the sauce to low heat for few minutes then serve with rice or pasta.
