Casserole of black beans, carrots, and celery. Worth the time it takes to prepare. Great topped with sour cream.

My husband and I really liked this casserole. My 3 year old ate it too. I used canned black beans and skipped all the long soaking and cooking times. It worked well.

Not bad just bland. I wouldn't add the carrots or celery until the baking time. We ended up using this as a filler for our halibut tacos. Too time consuming. I won't make this again.

The flavor was great however I had to double the salt for my taste. I would reccomend not adding the celery onions and carrots until just before gettting ready to bake. I only waited until it had simmered 1 hour and they were mush.

This is a fantastic meal in one and the taste is amazing. I have made this several times and my husband who is a "junk food" eater actually started requesting it. Its heart healthy and diet friendly and has lots of fiber with a dollop of light sour cream its a fantastic breakfast for us to switch up from oatmeal or egg whites and potatoes obrien.

Good - but needed some jazzin up. I used rinsed can black beans and kept vegetables crisp- added cheese and sour cream and it was great. Used this as a dip also.

This dish tasted even better when reheated rather then just out of the oven. I enjoyed it but my hubby did not care for it to much. It packs well for the lunchbox.

I made these on the stove top. They were ok but really boring. I suppose we are just used to black beans with jalapeno lime juice cilantro cumin etc. Would make again but only with these adjustments. Thanks anyway.
