- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- pinch of sea salt use sparingly

This dish is REAL easy to prepare. If you don’t want to roast your potatoes then you can simply pan fry them in a little extra virgin olive oil. The only other thing is add a half of a small white onion to the black beans when I heat them up on the stove. Heating them up in this manner releases the juice from the onion and beans, which creates a very flavorful bean juice you pour over the dish. So enjoy The Cous Cous Breakfast Experience!
