    They were tasty but found them lacking some flavor. I did leave out the red pepper due to young children eating them. Not everyone is a fan of fennel so I did not put much in first time I made them and left it out the second time. They held up in sauce. I only put in the sauce right before serving because I was worried they might fall apart.

    Very tasty! I didn’t have shallots so used diced onions. Only setback is it uses a lot of different pots and pans since I didn’t have a cast iron skillet.. and is time consuming but I will freeze my leftovers so probably worth it!

    Ten stars! Cannot believe how amazing these were I used the air fryer to both dry the black beans out and then to complete the cooking after browned in skillet- in hindsight I think the skillet could be skipped using an air fryer- cooked them on 375 for about 12-14 minutes and flipped a few times during cooking! Served over angel hair with marinara sauce with fresh mushrooms! The flavor is so amazing and you can’t tell these are black beans! We both loved them so much! Thanks Dana the Minimalist Baker for a fantastic recipe!

    Hot dang these were good. I was able to use leftover ingredients (some tomato paste, basil, onion, garlic and water) to make a sauce.
