Black Bean and Tomato Medley

Posted by MelissaE on Nov 9, 2007 10:02:00 AM

This one is really easy and versatile. You can eat it hot as a side dish (goes really well with fish) or cold as a dip for tortilla chips.

 

  • 2 cans organic black beans

  • 3 medium ripe tomatoes, cut into chunks

  • 1 large red onion, chopped - some diced, some chunked

  • 3 green onions, chopped

  • Large bundle of cilantro, de-stemmed and chopped

  • Garlic salt

  • 1 tspn cumin

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

  • Sliced Avocado (optional)

  • If you like it spicy, you can add jalepeno, sriracha or red pepper flakes

 

Saute red onion in a little olive oil in a medium pot. When onion begins to get soft, add green onions and continue to cook. When onions are soft, put heat on med-low and add cilantro, tomatoes, beans, cumin and garlic salt (I use a lot of garlic salt, but you can use as much/little as you like.) cook until dish is hot.

 

Top with sliced avocado (optional). Serve hot as a side dish or cold as a dip for chips. (TIP: This could be a healthy alternative for a holiday party appetizer or Superbowl Sunday dip.)
