Before starting this blog, I would post recipes on various other sites on the internet. In the interest of compiling all my food postings on one site, I repreint them here. Originally posted 3 February 2008.
Wash, dice, and wash a green onion and two stalks of green garlic, as always saving the bulb, outer layer, and tips for a soup. Sauté in olive oil, and add a small handful each of dried tomatoes and dried sweet red peppers, diced. Include a splash of water, and the leaves from a bunch of yellow beets, sliced into roughly one-inch squares. Cover, and cook until the greens are brightly colored and have just started to reduce. Then add a few spoonfuls of drained black beans (soaked and boiled and kept in the fridge until needed), enough to dominate the dish. Add salt and dried oregano, adjusting to taste, and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the residual liquid has evaporated.
