Vegan Oil Free Refried Black Beans — Frijoles de Cabo

Easy vegan oil free refried black beans are a cinch to whip up a busy weeknight!  Made only from pantry staples, you'll have them on the table in about 20 minutes!


  • 2 cans black beans drained (or 3 cups of home prepared black beans)
  • 2 cups veggie stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion powder
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried garlic powdered
  • 1/2 teaspoon vegan worcestershire sauce (I like Annie's brand)


  • Place all ingredients in a small pot.  Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer, cover, and allow to until most of the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. (I always feel like I have too much liquid, but once you mash the beans it all absorbs and the consistency is just right)  
  • Mash with a spoon or potato masher, discarding the bay leaves.
  • Enjoy—see, I told you they were easy!
