Not to be confused with the Hispanic refried beans, our Haitian fried beans are literally red kidney beans that we fry and serve as a side dish.
Soak your beans the night before
Drain them and transfer them to a pot filed with water
Add one garlic head and cook your beans halfway about 30 minutes
Drain the beans and fry them in some sizzling oil
Season with salt and pepper
Garnish with onions and fresh parsley
Serve hot with a vinaigrette on the side.
For this recipe to be successful, make sure only to cook the beans halfway before frying them or else you'll end up with some mushy beans.
Feel free to season the fried beans to your taste.
