Homemade Black Beans (Video)

Freeze homemade black beans to prepare healthy meals, quickly.

By Jessica Kellner

You might not think to freeze cooked beans because they usually begin as dry goods. But making your own beans at home is much healthier than buying the canned versions at your local grocery store. And when you spend the time making a pot of homemade black beans, it just makes sense to make a double or triple batch. Once you've followed along with our simple instructions, portion your beans into individual serving-size containers and keep them stocked in your freezer for simple weeknight meals. You can also mash them into dip-like spreads. These creamy, aromatic black beans have a great citrus flavor that will brighten up dishes.
