For this weight loss diet recipe, soak the black beans 6-8 hours prior to cooking.  Be sure to rinse thoroughly.  Combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil.  Then reduce heat and simmer for 6-8 hour or until beans are tender.  This makes a large batch and is great for freezing. Use as a main dish and top with shredded carrots (shown here) or use as a side dish or filler in burritos and tacos and top with chopped green onions. This diet recipe is packed with flavor, gluten free, high in protein and low in fat.
