Recipes Extra tips and comments

  • Serve with steam rice or quinoa
  • If you wish, serve also other side vegetable dishes like broccoli and mushrooms stir fried.
  • Or serve with sweet potato chips cooked with a weber
  • Or serve with whatever else you like
  • Tastes even better the second day… so you can make enough for that too
  • Because black beans are such high protein, even when I’m doing intermittent fasting (by only eating one to two meals a day), I don’t get hungry
  • Black beans also digest very easily, without the gas that tend to happen more with tofu (even though I think its also important for vegans to eat tofu from time to time).

Some new, recipes I’ve learnt

I recommend you get more protein from both black beans, and chick peas.

As I mentioned, they’re great alternatives to vegan protein like tofu, and digest probably easier.

As well, they’re quite tasty, even when cooked fairly simply.

So, the this is one of the black bean recipes I especially like, and I’ll share more soon.

This one is a great curry recipe for yogi recipe lovers, or whoever.
