We weren’t always like that. We ate our fair share of red meat until in 2008 we started eating better after a stroke forced us to.
So we started eating more beans and legumes
(which really what is the difference between beans and legumes? Can someone enlighten me?)
But Any Hoo- we have found our favorite meatless dinner.
At first I used brown rice and have slowly replaced the rice with cauliflower rice.
You take a bag of cauliflower rice and steam.
(I tried to grate my own one time and am still finding it hidden around my kitchen, but if you are brave and just want to try it- knock yourself out. I prefer the pre grated already bagged version.)
Steam the cauliflower and pour into a 13×9 pan. Season with cumin, chili powder, salsa, onions, cilantro, and lime juice. Then add two cans of organic black beans rinsed. Stir together and add a little cheese and bake till cheese melts and beans are warmed.
We like to top with shredded lettuce, avocado, ( or our Holy Guacamole ) and I let the kids eat with corn chips if they want.
It is packed full of fiber and tastes — well you guessed it… #YummO.
