Quick Dinner Idea
9:09 pm est
It's been awhile since I've posted a blog, but
here's a quick dinner idea I wanted to share with you. It's a sauteed red peppers and onions with re-fried beans
over rice. It's topped with some vegan sour cream. Here are some photos to illustrate just how quickly this
1 T. extra-virgin
1 onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 can Amy's re-fried black beans
Vegan Sour Cream -
I used "Follow Your Heart"
1. Place olive oil and onions
in a skillet over medium heat. When the onions begin to sizzle add a pinch of sea salt.
2. When the onions begin to soften, add the
red pepper and a pinch of sea salt and saute until the peppers are tender.
3. Add the can of
re-fried beans and heat through. Season with sea salt if desired.
4. Serve over whole grain. I used brown
rice and topped it with vegan sour cream. I also served this with a side of roasted veggies (carrots, potatoes, cauliflower,
broccoli, onion and asparagus), but you could simply serve it with a salad or a side of leafy cooked greens. You could
also add some green vegetables to the onions and peppers and saute them all together.
Suggestion: As always, cook
once and eat several times. Double or triple the recipe (depending on how many people you're cooking for) and serve
the leftover re-fried beans in a sprouted-grain tortilla with diced tomato, diced avocado and topped with vegan sour cream
for lunch the following day. Healthy and satisfying.
