RECIPE: Black Bean Salad – Cherryvale Organic Farm

Enjoy this delicious salad idea – great recipe for the fall season!
Serves 6


– 3 cups dried black beans – (To shorten their cooking time and make them easier to digest, black beans should be presoaked. Soak the beans in water for eight hours or overnight, placing the pan in the refrigerator so that the beans will not ferment. Before cooking the beans, drain the soaking liquid and rinse the beans with clean water).
– 1 onion
– 1 clove garlic
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 small Cinderella pumpkin (6 inches in diameter) or any other type of pumpkin
– 1 cup rainbow carrots
– Water


– Peel garlic and crush with mortar & pestle
– Cut onions into small cubes
– Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil into pan until hot, add the onions and the garlic and cook on low heat for about 1 minute, making sure that they remain white and do not brown.
– Add the presoaked black beans and water. Use 1 cup dried beans to 3 cups water.
– Cook over medium heat until desired tenderness (about 1 hour). Drain and let cool.
– While the black beans are cooking, in a separate pan, put the cubed carrots and pumpkins in just enough water to immerse all the vegetables, and bring to a boil. – Cook on medium heat until desired tenderness. Drain and let cool.
– Mix the cooked carrots and pumpkin with the black beans.


– 2 tablespoons buckwheat honey
– 2 tablespoons lemon juice
– 1/4 cup olive oil
