The Best Answer
I dont really like beans at all but I love these 2 recipies - and they have tuned into my bean staples!
Black beans, roasted red peppers and tomatoes
2 cans of black beans
4 red peppers
200g cherry tomatoes
Roast red peppers and tomatoes in the oven until they are all soft.
Cut up red peppers into small pieces
Use a hand blender to blend together 1 of the peppers and a handful of tomatoes and half a can of beans. It will turn into a kind of thick lumpy paste. Add it and the remaining red pepper and tomato into a sauce pan with the 1.5 cans of beans, put on medium head, add garlic paste and some tomato paste for a bit of zing, a little seasoning and mix together. Yum! It goes lovely with anything
Cauliflower and butterbean mash
1 head of cauliflower
1 can butterbeans
Simple really, boil the cauliflower until it's soft. Put in big bowl with can of butter beans. Add knob of butter, garlic paste and seasoning. Mash with masher, then blend with hand blender. Easy as! I used to be a huuuge fan of mash potatoes and ate them with every meal, this is even better! Makes it so easy to make a whole plate of food.
Hope this helps!
The trick is pre-planning meals, always being prepared. My freezer is full of meats I have measured into portions. Cooking a lot of stuff one day a week makes it easier, too. In fact, it'll be easier than your cooking before the diet.
A bag of frozen spinach with six servings in it. If you want two servings with each breakfast, use two bags.
A tube of sausage, already is six servings. (this week I'm using six servings of steak because I'm experimenting)
One and a half dozen eggs.
Brown whole tube sausage into crumbles, add bag(s) of spinach to thaw. Portion this mixture into six Tupperware containers. Put three containers in freezer to keep fresher. Next morning, heat oil in skillet, add Tupperware container of spinach and sausage, throw in 3 eggs, cook till omelette-y. Thank me later!
Chili! Sans onions of course. I'm more of an eyeballin' cook so bear with me.
I use 1 to 2 tbsps of grape seed oil and stir fry chopped up veggies, like red peppers, celery, onions, zuchini, mushrooms, whatever I have and like. Add some raw spinach until it gets wilty. Then
I take 1/2lb grass fed ground beef and 1/2 ground turkey and brown that up. Mix all together with some chili powder, cumin, salt & pepper. Mix it up good and then add 1 can of each, pinto beans, red kindney beans, black beans and white beans, 1 can of sf tomato sauce (I usually just make my own in the food processor with ripe tomatoes. Give it a nice stir, put a cover on the pot and simmer for an hour or so until the veggies get softer and the flavors all blend together. Cool and portion into little containers. I just grab one for lunch to take to work or if I'm too tired to cook when I get home, I can just zap in the microwave. You get your protein, veggies and legumes in one meal. HTH!
Mix some herbs & spice into ground beef, make a hamburger patty.
Put a fried egg (w/ coconut oil) on top.
Sprinkle the eggs with Paprika (which makes your eggs taste like BACON).
I like to add some sauteed kale on top, which I sauteed with onions, garlic powder (and to add some zing,vinegar). Add a side of beans and voila! This is one of my favorite meals!
Some of my staples ...
Minced meat, 1 egg, seasoning. Make into balls. Dry fry.
dry fry some bacon.
Sauce: Blend cherry tomatoes, zucchini, pepper, tomato puree, spices. Add bacon. Blend.
Cook the sauce, add the meatballs ... extremely yummy! (Serve to the family with pasta, but you won`t need it).
Tuna and white bean salad ... with celery for crunch. Plus any other veggies that you like. Season with lots of parsley and white wine vinegar/oil.
Curried lentils: Put soaked/tinned Lentils, a teaspooon or so of curry powder, some cooked chicken, any crunchy veggies you like (carrots, raw cauliflower are good), oil and vinegar, into a box. Put the lid on and shake it! This is my snack box that I keep in the fridge.
