  • 2 c Chopped yellow onions
  • 1 bn Of scallions, chopped
  • 3 Or 4 finely sliced cloves
  • -of garlic

I just made no-fat refried beans last night completely by accident.

I was making this recipe and discovered it in the process.

Soak beans overnight if possible. Drain water and add beans to a large 8-
or 10-quart pot. Then add enough of the cold water to cover the beans. Add
chopped yellow onions and garlic and bring to a boil. Cook for one hour and
add all the other things and more water if necessary.

Simmer (slight bubbling action) for 2 more hours or until the beans are
soft. Then remove 2 cups of cooked beans without juice and mash very good.
Then return the mashed up beans to the pot and stir into the mixture. This
makes a creamy, thicker gravy. If the beans are too dry, add enough water
to make them like you like them. Good over boiled rice.

Serves 8.

If you're in New Orleans on a Monday, this is the only thing you can eat.
