And so I found the Fiesta Bean Salad. I liked the sounds of the recipe and had most of the ingredients it called for, but I decided to jazz it up a little to take it from a side dish to an entree.
|Fiesta Vegan Bean Salad|
- In a large bowl, combine the garlic, lime juice, oil, cumin, crushed red pepper, and salt.
- Add the black beans, corn, tomato, Gardein, onion and cilantro; mix well.
- When ready to eat, gently mix in avocado and serve right away.
I can't take credit for making this tasty dinner. My boyfriend did everything but add the corn and the fake chicken. The recipe came together really quickly and was pretty tasty. Think Chipotle rice bowl minus the rice and with some protein. I think this would be a great dinner to have on a hot night when you don't feel like cooking...or would make a great side dish at a picnic. (probably minus the avocados though...they turned brown pretty quickly)
