Bean Recipes

All-Veg Tabbouleh

This elegant tabbouleh is even faster to make than the traditional version, yet it is completely grain-free. Finely processed raw cauliflower makes an extremely low-calorie base for all the rich, minerally, citrusy flavors of this classic Middle Eastern dish. Add in some of the optional extras to make it a full meal.

Baked Sweet Potato Hummus

This delightful, lightly sweet hummus makes a perfect satisfying, high-fiber fall snack with crunchy crudites or seasonal fruit slices. It is made without oils for lowest-cal, but tastes great with a splash of extra virgin olive, so feel free to drizzle if you're looking for some clean fats. The flavor with black beans is delightful, but the color isn't, so choose your bean base accordingly :)

Black and White Bean Soup

This creamy flavorful soup has a slight hint of fruitiness from the tomatoes and orange that lift plain beans to new heights. It is simple to make and provides a nice light entree for nights when you have no fresh proteins in the fridge or are looking for protein-and-fiber rich vegan fare.

Cheater Huevos Rancheros

Most Huevos Rancheros include some type of cheese, but the creamy avocado more than makes up for it, with a lot more fiber to boot. This easy meal gives me staying power for hours, plus it tastes so good, you’ll forget you’re eating beans for breakfast

Cranberry Pumpkin Hummus

Try this autumnal hummus for a satisfying snack, salad topper or as a holiday party dish. Using pumpkin lightens the calorie load of traditional all-bean hummus, and the the overtones of cranberry and orange lend it a lightly sweet and tangy seasonal flare.

Flavorful No-Cook Chili

When you think of chili it usually conjures up images of slowly simmering pots wafting rich odors of peppery spices and fragrant meats. But the chili concept is very versatile. It’s possible to lighten up on the heaviness of classic chili for the spring without sacrificing all the wonderful flavors. This tantalizing no-cook version maximizes both flavor and nutrients by capitalizing on lots of fresh, raw veggies.
