I hope you’re not sick of pulses yet because today we’re talking about another super awesome pulse – black beans!
Not only are black beans full of fibre and protein (aka will keep you full longer) they’re incredibly easy to cook with, very versatile, and basically we should all eat more of them! Here in Canada we grow a TON of black beans and a majority of them are exported because we don’t eat them – at least other countries have figured out their awesome-ness 😉
Because of their texture, flavour, and easy preparation black beans can be included in a wide variety of dishes. So, if you’re on the hunt for new and creative ways to eat black beans at every meal, I’ve got you covered!
For breakfast you can try this Easy Black Bean and Tofu Scramble from Diary of an ExSloth.
Looking for ways to eat black beans at lunch? Look no further than this Vegan Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup from Emilie Eats, an Easy Quinoa and Black Bean Salad from Mango About Town (me!) or this Southwestern Veggie Bowl with Black Bean Hummus from Pumpkin and Peanut Butter.
If you’re looking to spice up your snack game, Dani California Cooks has you covered with this Spicy Black Bean Dip.
Including black beans in your dinner plan has never been easier with these Sweet Potato Black Bean Quinoa Burgers from Kerri’s Fit Kitchen and these Chicken and Black Bean Burrito Bowls from 24 Carrot Life.
Finally, because you can’t finish a meal without having dessert, try these Black Bean Brownies from joy food sunshine (and try not to drool all over your keyboard).
Let’s chat – What are your favourite ways to prepare black beans? Have you ever made black bean brownies before?
