2 cups dried black beans
4 cups water
3 tbs vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic,finely chopped
1 bay leaf
1 tsp salt
3. Add a ladleful of beans and stock to the hot frying pan, and deglaze the pan by stirring together with the onion and garlic for a minute, scraping up any residue sticking to the base. Pour the mixture back into the rest of the beans in the pressure cooker.
5. Remove the bay leaf and stir in the salt. If you prefer a thin sauce, add in a little boiling water.
6. Serve the beans straight away while still piping hot,as an accompaniment to a rice or meat dish.
