MEXE VEGIES

mexe-beans-and-rice.jpg

For those of us who enjoy meat free meals. Enjoy this bean dish with tacos, burritos, nachos or rice. I like to top mine with salsa and Guacamole (you can find those recipes under snacks)

INGREDIENTS:

You can add any vegetables to this dish you like, this is what I used…

  • 4 button mushrooms, diced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 corn cob, corn sliced off
  • 1 can black beans or 1 cup dried black beans (that have been soaked over night and boiled)
  • 1 large tomato, diced.
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced or crushed
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • ΒΌ tsp. chilli powder or flakes
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut or olive oil
  • salt and pepper

METHOD:

  • In a medium saucepan, heat oil on medium high heat. Add garlic, cook stirring for 30 seconds.
  • Add cumin, chilli and paprika and cook stirring for 1 minute.
  • Stir in zucchini, mushroom and corn. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes until the vegetables start to become soft.
  • Add in the diced tomato and beans and cook it down until the tomato melts down (about 3 minutes). You can add 1 tablespoon of water if you want it a bit more of a sauce.
  • Serve with Guacamole and salsa on your favourite Mexican dish.
