30 MINUTE BLACK BEANS AND LIME RICE

Quick and easy, 30 minute Black Beans and Lime Rice! With a few simple ingredients you’ve got a great week night dinner, and leftovers make for an ideal lunch!

The beans are perfectly spiced with cumin, paprika and optional cayenne. The lime rice adds an authentic ‘gotta have it taste’, and a handful of cilantro completes the bowl! Gluten-free!

Where do I begin with such a simply, complex bowl of rice and beans? I mean, there are so many bean and rice recipes on the web it’ll make your head spin trying to find the perfect one. Trust me I was once there. That is, until I created this 30 minute Black Beans and Lime Rice.

It has that ‘gotta have it taste’, that’ll have you coming back for more!

I’ve made 30 minute Black Beans and Lime Rice countless times for my family. When I feel extra lazy, I’ll toss all the black bean ingredients (except the corn, I’ll add that about 15 minutes into cooking) into a large saucepan. Allow everything to simmer on low for 20-25 minutes or until the onion is cooked.

However I am forewarning you about this method, I’ve noticed using canned beans sometimes leads to one of my biggest pet peeves, “hollow bean pits”. It’s how I refer to them. This happens when the black beans are over cooked. The skin breaks and the bean inside becomes a mush leaving hollow bean skins.
Now I don’t know about you, but I want to eat the whole bean not just the skin. So to avoid this, I allow the onion to cook a bit before adding the canned beans.

Ingredients

Black Beans

  • 2 (15.5 oz.) cans low sodium organic black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2/3 cup organic corn
  • Optional cayenne pepper to taste

Rice

  • Juice of 2-3 limes

Garnish

  • Fresh organic cilantro
  • Organic lime wedges

Instructions

  1. Cook the rice according to the package or your rice cooker.
  2. Once the rice has fully cooked, squeeze in 2-3 limes and mix.

  1. In a large saucepan, simmer the broth, water, diced onion, minced garlic and seasonings for about 8 minutes.
  2. Now add the beans and corn. Continue simmering for another 15 min.
  3. If needed, adjust seasonings to taste.

SPICY VEGAN BLACK BEAN SOUP

There’s nothing better than a warming bowl of your favorite soup on a cold, dreary night. Not the kind of soup from a can, but the easy homemade kind that’s comforting and good for the soul, with enough leftovers for days.

Hello, Spicy Vegan Black Bean Soup. You have been a favorite of mine since um, forever?

The first bowl of Black Bean Soup I ever had was from Panera, way back in high school during my senior year. How I remember that? I’m not sure ha. I wasn’t vegan then but lightly dabbled with the vegetarian thing on and off and also the non-dairy thing here and there – even back when almond milk was unheard of and not as mainstream as it is now!

Back then (about 9 years ago… eek) Panera didn’t offer many meat-free or dairy-free options EXCEPT black bean soup and a couple salads, at least from what I remember. Now they have a handful of vegan-friendly options but I also remember choosing Black Bean Soup because it was low-fat and low-sodium but high in fiber. Guess I’ve always been into nutrition.

It’s taken me a while to share this recipe… mainly because, while Black Bean Soup is absolutely DELISH and comes with nutrition facts from the nutrition gods, it’s not as photogenic or colorful as my Cleansing Detox Soup, (a major hit here on the blog) or as vibrant as my recipes in general.

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, right?!

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 cup water (or 2 tablespoons olive oil; if not oil-free)
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/3-1/2 jalapeño, finely chopped, to taste (optional)
  • 2 medium-sized carrots, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped (or any color)
  • 4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)
  • 1 15 oz. can organic sweet corn, drained and rinsed
  • 3 15 oz. cans organic black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • sea salt & pepper, to taste
  • toppings: avocado, crushed tortilla chips, jalapeño, cilantro, dairy-free cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat the water (or oil, if preferred) in a soup pot or large dutch oven over medium heat. Stir in the onions and garlic, with a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent.
  2. Stir in the jalapeño, carrot, red bell pepper, cumin, chili powder and red pepper flakes. Cook until vegetable are soft, about 7-9 minutes.

Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread

Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread – perfect to go with pasta dishes or soups! So easy and so good, you won’t be able to stop eating it!
Last week, I posted a photo of this bread on my Instagram asking if I should blog about this bread. I have to admit, I was hesitant because this recipe uses a shortcut – a store bought Italian bread. As you may know, I love to bake breads from scratch. However, I am still working on my Italian bread from scratch, hence the store-bought.
Let’s face it – sometimes you just need a shortcut. And this is a good one. Especially if you love a side of a delicious bread with your dinner like I do!
This bread has a perfect garlicky taste and an ooey-gooey cheesy top. You can’t say no to that! We love it with soups, like our homemade chicken noodle soup. My Hubby always requests it when he makes his chili. It’s also perfect with my Garlic Mushroom Pasta, the Lemon Asparagus Pasta or my Bacon Potato and Corn Chowder.
Cheese and bread are one of those things that I could never give up. Or at least I would have a reeeeeeeally hard time doing. I heart it so much! I could eat this bread by itself! And I have! Slice some tomatoes on top and add a sprinkle of sea salt – so so good!

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 loaf of Italian bread
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (see note)
  • 1 cup and 1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cut the bread lengthwise and place both parts face up on the sheet.
  4. Brush both pieces with melted butter. Sprinkle with garlic powder.
  5. Cover with a piece of aluminum foil and place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
  7. Uncover bread. Top with cheese.
  8. Place bread back in the oven for 2 to 4 more minutes, to melt the cheese. (see note)
  9. Remove from the oven and place on a cutting board.
  10. Let cool for few minutes. Slice and serve.

Cajun-Style Grill Foil Packets

You can’t go wrong with grill foil packets… whether you make them over a campfire, on your grill, or even in your oven, they are a delicious, no-mess meal the whole family will love!
We have been making foil dinners a lot lately because it has been so HOT here in Idaho! When the temps start reaching triple-digits I will do anything I can to keep the heat out of my kitchen. We love doing grill foil packets in the Summertime because they don’t heat up the house, the whole family loves them, and there is NO MESS (that is the best part, really). Surprisingly, many people I have talked to don’t know how to make grill foil packets.
There really isn’t much to them– they are so easy to do! You just throw all the food in, fold it up (see how to fold up grill foil packets below) and put it over a grill, a campfire, or even in the oven (see notes below on how to do foil packets in the oven).
Not only is there virtually no mess when making them– there is no mess when EATING from them either! My family will eat them right out of the foil packet, crumple up the foil, and throw it away. This is also the perfect meal for camping. You can prepare the packets ahead of time and throw them on the fire when you get to your campsite… again, no mess. If you don’t have a grill or aren’t wanting the outdoor experience, you can also make these in your oven at 400-degrees for the same amount of time.
Just place each packet on a cookie sheet and bake as you would on the grill. Another great thing about these foil packets is that each person can make and customize their own, which makes EVERYONE happy. No one picking through the contents and turning up their nose because a shrimp touched their potatoes… etc.. We like to dip some of the contents of the packets in ranch dressing or BBQ sauce, but it is great as-is if you want to serve it plain, too!

INGREDIENTS :

  • 8-12 pieces of corn on the cob (4 full cobs cut in half or in thirds)
  • 4 red potatoes, washed and cubed
  • 20-30 uncooked shrimp (peeled or not, it’s up to you)
  • 1 Lb. smoked sausage, cut into chunks
  • melted butter (or olive oil), to taste
  • 1/2 c. chicken broth (you may not need that much)
  • Cajun/Creole seasoning (we like to use Tony Chachere’s brand), to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. (makes 4 grill packets)
  2. Heat grill to 400-degrees (you can do this in your oven, too, at the same temp.).
  3. Evenly distribute corn, potatoes, shrimp, and sausage between 4 heavy-duty foil sheets (appx 12×18 inches each).
  4. Drizzle melted butter and about 2 Tbsp.
  5. chicken broth over each foil packet.
  6. Season evenly (and generously), to taste with Cajun seasoning and salt and pepper.

BLACK BEAN & SWEET POTATO TACOS | VEGETARIAN

These Black Bean & Sweet Potato Tacos are gluten free and vegetarian.  They make a great breakfast, lunch or dinner taco recipe.
These black bean and sweet potato tacos have become a new obsession in our house. Normally, both Cohl and I are HUGE egg fans… eating either an omelet, Migas, or any other concoction with the beloved multi-purpose egg. However, lately we have become a little tired of them and had to come up with an alternative for our breakfast routine.
Still wanting to be able to cook something up rather quickly, the sweet potatoes are cubed up rather small so they can be cooked fully in a skillet. There is no oven pre-heating or baking required with these sweet potato tacos!! Simply throw your ingredients in a skillet and saute away.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups sweet potatoes cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup refried black beans
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • Cilantro
  • Cheese *can use vegan cheese

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet place olive oil and sweet potatoes. Cover skillet and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Continue cooking over medium heat for 7-8 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are cooked through.
  3. In a separate skillet over medium heat, add one tablespoon coconut oil and 2-3 tortillas. Heat up tortillas for 1-2 minutes on each side. Remove tortillas and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

CORN, AVOCADO, AND TOMATO SALAD

We try to teach our kids the value of money. They earn an allowance by doing chores throughout the week. Today, I looked out the kitchen window to see my son spraying sunblock in the air like tropical air freshener. All I saw was a mist of dollar bills – that stuff is liquid gold. Lesson fail.
Speaking of wasting money, I’m pretty sure the ice cream truck guy is stalking us. I swear he pulls his van up to our house and turns up his carnival music. It puts me in an awkward position. I look like the grumpy mom if I deny my kids, who are jumping up and down in front of the truck, ice cream in this blasted heat.
Even though my kids use their own money they’ve earned, the prices are ridiculously high. I give in every once in a while…immediately followed by a lecture about how you can buy a whole carton of ice cream for the same price that the ice cream truck charges for one. We have a freezer full of said ice cream but the allure of a colorfully painted truck driven by a creepy guy is for some reason much more appealing to them.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked corn, fresh or frozen (see Note)
  • 1-2 avocados, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup finely diced red onion

Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Combine the corn, avocado, tomatoes and onion in a large glass bowl. Mix together the dressing ingredients in another bowl, pour over the salad, and gently toss to mix. Chill salad for an hour or two to let flavors blend.

Corn, Tomato, & Avocado Salad

Corn, Tomato, & Avocado Salad is an explosion of Tex-Mex flavors and summertime textures, with fresh roasted corn, juicy tomatoes, creamy avocado, minced jalapeño, crumbled cotija cheese, and fresh cilantro in a zippy lime vinaigrette!
There’s something just magical about fresh corn on the cob. I have to admit, though, that I used to mostly avoid it because it was such a sticky, frustrating mess to husk. That all changed a couple of years ago when I discovered the easiest, tastiest, BEST way to cook fresh corn…no more silk sticking to everything in sight! And now I don’t hesitate to load up on fresh corn whenever it’s in season.
Today’s recipe is a twist on a Corn, Black Bean, & Tomato Salad that I’ve been making for years. But I always made that one with frozen corn…and lately I’ve been on a total cotija cheese kick…plus, what salad isn’t improved with the addition of avocado? So I decided to make a few changes, which resulted in this amazing, bursting-with-flavor Corn, Tomato, & Avocado Salad! It’s just the thing to carry you through the rest of the summer.
I think what makes this salad so tasty is all of its contrasting flavors and textures. You have the fresh corn kernels popping in your mouth with little bursts of sweetness. You have the juicy acidity of the plump tomatoes. You have the cool, creamy avocado. And then there’s the Tex-Mex contributions of zippy minced jalapeño, salty cotija cheese, zesty fresh cilantro, and a puckery lime dressing. Yes, this salad has something for everyone…and when you combine those somethings-for-everyone, they transform into something extraordinary!

Ingredients
For the dressing:

  • 1/3 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice, plus additional lime juice for coating avocado
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

For the salad:

  • 4 ears fresh corn, roasted, shucked, & kernels sliced from cobs (about 3 1/4 cups kernels)
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 fresh jalapeños, seeds & membranes removed and finely diced
  • 4 ounces cotija cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 large, ripe avocados, diced & tossed in fresh lime juice

Instructions

  1. Make dressing by whisking all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly incorporated, or shaking them in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Set aside.

QUINOA ENCHILADA CASSEROLE

A lightened-up, healthy enchilada bake that you can enjoy guilt-free, chockfull of quinoa, black beans and cheesy goodness. And the leftovers taste even better!
I think it’s safe to say that I have somewhat of a love affair with Mexican food. Whether it’s fish tacos, cheesy enchiladas or a giant burrito the size of my forearm, I could honestly live off of all of these for the rest of my life.
So when Old El Paso asked me to be their brand ambassador for the next year, well, how could I say no? It just gives me an excuse to make even more of my favorite Mexican-inspired dishes to share with you all! And to start things off, I just had to share my favorite Mexican comfort food lightened-up.
Now this is a super easy enchilada bake with quinoa instead of tortilla. By using quinoa, we’re adding in some fun healthy goodies, like protein and fiber, and there’s absolutely no rolling or wrapping of any kind. You can simply throw everything into a bowl, mix it up, and bake it from there. Yes, it doesn’t get easier than that!

CROCKPOT CHICKEN VEGGIE QUINOA SOUP

You know those vegetables that are left over from the last soup or dinner you made? The ones that tend to sit in the bottom drawer of your fridge just *waiting* to be made into something delicious? Because you always have good intentions for the leftover vegetables right? I always have those good intentions and then somehow I seem to find a few completely wilted celery stalks and some less than firm avocados (okay fine. squishy and brown beyond any desire to eat) in the bottom of the fridge. And honestly I hate wasting food.
I mean who doesn’t, right? And that is why this soup has become a favorite as of late. It’s totally customizable to keep any of your vegetables going to waste. It’s one of those recipes that makes you feel good in the “I just used the last bits of random veggies in the fridge” kind-of-way.
And THEN, you taste the soup, and it’s a whole new level of excitement. Because this soup is not only keeping you from wasting any small amounts of veggies, but it’s also tasty, filling, and very healthy. We’ve made this soup a few times now always using different vegetables. You can pretty much chop up and add just about whatever you have on hand or whatever you like.
My favorite combos always start with celery, carrots, and onion (chopped super fine and the husband can’t even tell there are in there (he’s not an onion fan)). If you add in the carrots slice them thin and small to get them tender in time with the other ingredients. And basically any other vegetable you add — make sure it’s chopped or sliced into pretty small bits so it can get cooked through in the time the chicken and quinoa is cooked in.
We’ve also tried both chicken breasts and thighs. The thighs result in a more tender (and a bit more flavorful) meat, but both will work. If you use chicken breasts, slice them into large chunks (about 3 chunks per breast) to help the chicken cook evenly with everything else.
Since quinoa absorbs liquid like crazy, I’ve found it’s best to only use the high setting when cooking this soup. Cook this soup on low and it turns into more of a stew (also good, just depends on what you like.) For a very brothy soup, you can always add in more broth and make sure to cook it just until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through.

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 pound (~2 large) boneless skinless chicken breasts or 4-6 thighs
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery 2 stalks
  • 1/3 cup diced yellow onion
  • 3/4 cup quinoa I use garlic infused packet
  • 1/2 cup orange juice or extra broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 5 cups chicken broth or stock
  • Seasoned salt and pepper

SEASONINGS :

  • 1-2 leaves bay
  • 1 teaspoon chicken seasoning blend or 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon
  • 2 teaspoons cajun seasoning*
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • Toppings: low-fat sour cream, fresh cilantro, fresh lime wedges or lime juice

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Trim the fat off the chicken breasts or thighs. If using breasts, cut each breast into 3 large even pieces.
  2. Place the chicken breasts or thighs in the bottom of a large crockpot. I use a 6 quart crockpot.
  3. Add in the drained and rinsed pinto beans, drained corn, thinly sliced carrots, sliced celery, diced onion, quinoa (rinse if not pre-rinsed to remove the bitter saponin coating), orange juice (or extra broth), undrained can of diced tomatoes with green chiles (such as Ro-Tel), tomato paste, minced garlic, and chicken broth or stock.
  4. Add about 1 teaspoon seasoned salt (or to taste) and 1 teaspoon pepper (or to taste), bay leaves, chicken seasoning blend, cajun seasoning, oregano, ground cumin, and paprika.
  5. Stir and then cover and cook on high for 3-5 hours or until the chicken easily shreds and the quinoa has “popped.” My crockpot takes about 3 hours.
  6. The longer it cooks, the more liquid the quinoa absorbs which is why I don’t recommend cooking on low unless you are fine with a stew 🙂
  7. Remove the chicken and shred. Return to the crockpot.
  8. Remove the bay leaves and then enjoy the soup topped with optional toppings such as fresh cilantro, fresh lime, sour cream (we use low fat), and additional cajun seasoning, salt, pepper.
