Mini black bean burger patties for Lucy (ours were normal sized)
Black bean soup with paprika and garlic on toast (recipe from Drea)
Eating kale chips
Tostadas with sauteed peppers and onions, black beans, tomatoes, cheese, and a dollop of Greek yogurt.
Noodles with peanut sauce, stir-fried cabbage, and home grown sprouts
Here are a few things I have made over the past few weeks. Notice how the majority of these dishes use black beans? Yeah. I eat a ton of black beans (all beans actually). They are just so easy for me. I grew up eating (home made) bean and cheese burritos at least five days a week. As an adult I find I still want the same thing, though I do try to mix it up with different veggies and seasonings. Isn’t it funny how we grow up and try (and love) tons of new things, yet always return to the familiar? California-Mexican food is my comfort food.
