Meatless meals are a great way to incorporate more vegetables, whole grains, and beans into your diet, and meatless meals are a great way to save a little bit of money. And if you’re thinking you’ll be sacrificing flavor by making meatless meals, think again! There are so many delicious, healthy meatless meals that are filling and satisfying, from ravioli with beans and tomatoes to lentil burgers to baked potatoes topped with black beans and corn. Here is one easy, flavorful and filling meatless meal recipe for you to try:
Southwestern Black Beans:
Sauté ½ cup chopped onion, minced garlic (2 cloves), 1 teaspoon cumin, and ½ teaspoon chili powder for 3 minutes in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low. Add 1 (15 ounce) can black beans (rinsed and drained), 1 ½ cups frozen corn and 1 ½ cups fresh salsa; cook until heated through, about 4 minutes. Evenly spoon mixture into 4 baked potatoes, and then evenly top with ¼ cup shredded cheese and chopped fresh cilantro.
Black beans are a very good source of fiber, folate, and tryptophan, and they’re a good source of iron, magnesium, manganese, and protein.
This is one delicious meatless meal you just can’t go wrong with!
