A spin on the classical Brazilian dish.  This black bean stew has carrots and spinach added to boost it’s nutritional value.

I love this recipe because:
– It’s VERY quick and easy to make.
– It’s super healthy with fibre, protein, vitamins, and minerals.
– It’s yummy and satisfying.
– It’s costs practically nothing to make.
Plant based eating doesn’t need to be expensive.


2 onions, diced

6 cloves garlic, minced

3 cups sliced carrots

4 cups black beans, soaked over night

2 tsp salt, or to taste

4 cups packed spinach

Bay leave


Lemon wedges

Hot sauce

Using your Instant pot water sauté the onions and garlic until they begin to brown. Add carrots, beans, salt, bay leave and enough water to cover the beans plus one inch.

Set your instant pot to manual for 30 minutes.

Let the steam release naturally.

Before serving, add the spinach and mix well.  It will wilt in the hot stew.

Serve with hot sauce and a squeeze of fresh lemon.


Serve this recipe with a side of brown rice and a steamed green vegetable and you’ve got yourself the perfect meal.
