5 star average rating from testers!


  • 1 butternut squash (small)
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 onion (small, chopped)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cans black beans (16 ounces each, rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano


  1. Heat the squash in the microwave on high heat for 1-2 minutes. This will soften the skin.

  3. Cut the squash into 1/2 inch cubes.
  4. Peel and chop the onion.
  5. In a large pan, heat the oil. Add the onion, garlic powder, and squash.
  6. Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat.
  7. Add vinegar and water. Cook on low heat until the squash is tender, about 10-20 minutes covered.
  8. Add the beans and oregano. Cook until the beans are heated through, uncovered.
