Why we love it

Black beans are known to absorb flavor from whatever they’re paired with, so it’s a good thing these are cooked in savory onions, sharp green peppers, and a choice blend of aromatic, zingy spices. This rich, chunky recipe, so dark it’s almost purple, seeps from your pot and into your bowl, dripping with classic Cuban flavors.

How it does good

Food made good for the good of all people

Food might not be created equal, but it isn’t distributed equally either. Communities and families all over the U.S. are unable to access the nutrients and high-quality ingredients they need due to limitations on budgets, free time, food education, and outdoor space. A Dozen Cousins knows the risks associated with these issues, including diabetes and diet-related illnesses, and they believe good, healthy food should be available to all people, regardless of location or income level. By offering plant-based, non-GMO ingredients at a lower price point, they’re making food more affordable and easier to find. They also offer annual grant support and volunteer their time to help out communities and unlock the gates to better food for everyone.

  • supporting key causes

    Every year, A Dozen Cousins donates funds and time to a non-profit working to close the health gap in the US. In 2019, they partnered with The Happy Kitchen/La Cocina Alegre to teach fifty families about nutritious, budget-friendly meals from their own cultures. By making traditional Black- and Latino-inspired products, they're bringing African, Spanish, and Indigenous dishes to the forefront.
  • responsible sourcing

    You’ll recognize everything on A Dozen Cousins’ ingredient lists, and you can be sure it's all plant-based, non-GMO, and naturally gluten-free. They nix artificial flavors and swap them for nourishing, high-quality, and authentic recipes.
  • Certified Non-GMO

About the Brand

A Dozen Cousins

A Dozen Cousins

Growing up, founder Ibraheem Basir's kitchen was a melting pot of Creole, Caribbean, and Latin American cooking. As he got older and learned the importance of eating naturally, he hated that it was so hard to find convenient foods that were both healthy and authentic. He started A Dozen Cousins, inspired by his daughter and her 11 cousins, so that it would be easier to enjoy authentic cultural recipes made with wholesome ingredients. Today, A Dozen Cousins is on a mission to eliminate socioeconomic health disparities in the US.

Flavorbomb!

Hey there, Hive - Jamie here from the Sustainability team! Honestly, I can't say enough about the flavor of these and all of the Dozen Cousins beans. These have quickly become my favorite go-to lunch when I'm crunched for time. Quick, easy, and uncompromising on taste, you can't go wrong with any of their selections. Plus, they keep me full the whole afternoon, so I'm not mindlessly grazing on things while working from home - a definite added bonus!
