Amazing Beans--healthy, easy, yummy

I thought I'd post a quick, easy and inexpensive recipe for a side dish of beans. There are so many health benefits from beans. I've only made this recipe with black beans but I imagine any type of bean would work. Eat up...lots of antioxidants, fiber and low in fat.

Amazing Beans

1 can black beans, drained, rinsed (or whatever beans you prefer)

Juice of 1 lemon
Drizzle of olive oil
Chopped fresh parsley and cilantro (optional)
Fresh ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed

Combine all ingredients and let marinate for at least 30 minutes. Heat before serving. Keeps in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

I bet that this would be delicious cold, over a salad. With some tomatoes and some feta. MMM. Going to eat this this week!
