Beans are nutritional powerhouses worth building into your daily diet, and “refried” beans are a delicious and satisfying way to help to make that happen. Using the slow cooker means prep is next to nil—you can even let these cook overnight! Onion and smoky cumin pack these beans with flavor, and oregano stands in for epazote, a traditional herb that can be hard to find. Kombu adds depth of flavor and increases digestibility of legumes as they cook.
