2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp fresh lime juice
½ – ¾ C low sodium vegetable broth

In sauté pan, heat garlic in oil on medium heat.

Add onion and jalapeño as oil begins to warm.

Add oregano and cumin and sauté, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender, adding a few drops of water if they begin to stick.

Add black beans and vegetable broth and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes, to allow flavors to blend.
