This is one of my favourite meals. It is super easy and really tasty. I don’t usually measure things so over time you will figure out what works best for you. I will give a guesstimate as to what measures to use.
Soak black beans over night – about 2 cups
Rinse and cook until tender.
1 medium to large onion
6 cloves of garlic
juice of 1 large lemon or 2 small limes
1/2 tsp corriander
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 a hot pepper serano or jalapeno – may use pepper flakes instead.
1 pepper – green or otherwise
1 can of corn – must be organic non GMO or forget about it! 😉 Honestly, do not add it.
You can also add chopped cilantro to the base or mince and put on top.
I do not serve this with rice but that is also an option.
Chop onion and grill in coconut oil. I like the spray from Trader Joe’s.
While grilling add in the corriander and cumin, stir
In food processor chop the garlic and pepper and lemon – I use a vitamix so I put the entire lemon in without the rind and blend it well. Often people will chop and juice by hand, if you have a vitamix why bother.
Add this and simmer on low.
Add the beans and simmer
This is when you start tasting to see if it needs more spice.
Add in the colored pepper – you don’t want this to get mushy so you leave it near the end
Add in the can of corn with the juice. You also want this to be a bit crunchy.
Simmer on low for awhile and serve.
If you are on your Isagenix cleanse and are having a meal day, you would eat it just like this with maybe a little chopped tomato or salsa and a 1/4 of a chopped avocado on top. If you are not cleansing and want to fancy it up, add a dolop of organic sour cream, some salsa, chopped avocado and a few organic corn chips. Use the corn chips as a spoon. This is a really easy, quick and tasty dish. All vegetarian and all good! It also keeps well for a few days and may be frozen.
Use organic whenever possible and if you can’t get organic corn or corn chips, skip them. Watch the movie Genetic Roulette. You will understand why.
To your health!
