Stress Relief vis-à-vis Black Beans


Everyone should own a Smood. Making “refried” black beans has never been so fun!

Stress Relieving Black Beans (slow cooked version)

Makes 3 servings


  • 2c of dried black beans
  • 4-6c of water
  • 2 tbs sea salt
  • 2 tbs nonfat greek yogurt
  • More salt and pepper to taste

Things you need:

  • Seriously, you need a Smood! Or a Smood like device! But I supposed a whisk would suffice. Maybe a wooden spoon (snooze).
  • Crock pot


  1. Add the beans, water, and sea salt to the crock pot.
  2. Turn it on, let it work all day.
  3. Drain the beans, but reserve about half a cup of the bean juice.
  4. Add the yogurt to the beans and bean juice.
  5. Let the smooding begin!!
  6. Clean the flung pieces of beans off the walls.
  7. Serve!
