Sweet Corn and Beans

What you need: 

1 pound frozen sweet corn
1 cup dry black beans, soaked overnight (about 2 cups prepared)
1 large sweet onion, diced
2 tablespoons margarine (try Earth Balance)
1 cup veggie stock
2 teaspoons vegan cane sugar
2 tablespoons molasses
1 1/2 tablespoons cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons oregano

What you do: 

1) Soak black beans overnight in enough water to cover them. Rinse and cook until tender.
2) Once the black beans are ready, saute the onion in margarine for 5 to 10 minutes. Add all other ingredients, adjusting the amount of stock to personal preferences. Cook hard for a few minutes and then let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until desired doneness.
Goes great with corn bread or as a dip with tortilla chips.
Source of recipe: With the pantry and freezer looking rather bare, I threw together what I had, and this was the result. Enjoy!

I sometimes like to add 4-6 very ripe tomatoes... they add a nice flavor and a little more color!
