Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups Butternut squash, cubed (1 small squash, about 1 pound)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion (small, chopped)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 cans black beans (16 ounces each, rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

  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 minutes.
  8. Add the beans and oregano. Cook until the beans are heated through.
