  1. 1 kilo (about 7 cups) Carioca Beans (or black eyed peas)
  2. 7 cups water
  3. 1 tsp salt
  4. ----
  5. 5 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 1 large onion, diced
  7. 5 Tbsp canola oil
  8. 2 tsp salt
  1. Soak beans overnight in a large bowl, filled with water
  2. Drain beans and place in a large pot with water and salt
  3. Bring mixture to a boil
  4. Reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 hours until soft and tender. (This is not the place you want anything "al-dente")
  5. Meanwhile in a second large pot add oil, garlic, onion and salt
  6. Cook on low heat till onions are lightly golden
  7. Once beans are soft, pour out 1/3 of the liquid they were cooking
  8. Pour the beans and remaining water into the pot with the onion and garlic
  9. Cook for another 30 minutes, covered until water has thickened to create a "sauce"
  10. Taste to adjust seasoning
  11. Serve over rice and enjoy!
  1. Another incredible recipe from my Brazilian friends, Nomi Fink and Malki Landau.
