Black Beans with Sausage

I have been making this recipe for a couple of years after finding it from Martha Stewart. Her version is a bit different,
but this is the version my family prefers.  My family loves this recipe for its heartiness and taste.  I love this recipe because it is easy to prepare, quick to cook, and it makes good leftovers when I double the recipe.  I also like it because it is forgiving in that I can use whatever sausage we have on hand (or is on sale) AND I can add other ingredients to change it up a bit like; corn, pinto beans, chopped tomatoes, or cayenne pepper. 
Start to finish it takes about 40 minutes. Serves 4.  Great with a cold salad and warm bread. 

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 pound kielbasa or other smoked sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 medium carrots, diced
  • 1 med onion diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cans (15.5 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, (can use some parsley sprigs to
  • ½ cup sour cream
Heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high.
Brown sausage on all sides, 10 min.  Set aside on a plate.
Add carrots and onions to the skillet and cook until they begin to soften, 5 min.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add garlic and cook about 1 min.
Add black beans and broth and bring mixture to a boil.
Add sausage, reduce heat to rapid simmer,cook until carrots are tender, 10 min.
Remove from heat and stir in parsley.
Serve with more parsley and a dollop of sour cream.

  1. Making this tonight for the in-laws…serving with corn bread muffins and chop salad. My family LOVED your pretzel strawberry dessert so much that my mother in law is taking the recipe back with her to Arizona to make for pot lucks!

  2. This sounds like a really easy recipe, so I will try this. Thank you for sharing.

    Bobbie Anne may I share one of my easy cobbler recipes. I made it on the weekend when some friends came over and it was received with some praise.
