Ingredients:

* 1-2 strips of bacon, cut into small pieces

* 1 can black soy beans

* 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

* salt or seasoning salt and pepper to taste

* 2 tbs. cream or milk

Preparation:

1) Fry bacon pieces until crispy.

2) Carefully add beans (it may splatter).

3) Stir, and mash beans. I use a potato masher, or sometimes a stick blender. You could put them in blender.

4) Add seasonings and adjust to taste. Heat until bubbling.

5) Add cream or milk, and serve.

Each of 4 servings has 4.5 grams effective carbohydrate plus almost 6 grams of fiber.

Note: Black Soy Beans are merely a variety of soy bean. Nutritionally, they are very similar to regular yellow soy beans. They are high in fiber and protein, and relatively low in carbohydrate.

Black soy beans are great substitutes for higher carb beans. They don’t taste “soybean-y” as the yellow ones do, but more like regular black beans. Use them for baked beans, re-fried beans, bean soup, chili, you name it.

Most health food stores carried canned organic black soy beans by Eden Foods. Dry black soy beans are harder to find, but some stores carry them.
