Simple Black Bean Salsa

February 1, 2019

 

Simple yet scrumptious. That's what this Simple Black Bean Salsa is all about.

 

Last week I was chatting with my dad after the launch of the new Canada Food Guide. He rolled his eyes at the idea of eating legumes. But then he tried my Spicy Chickpeas and I think I won him over...a little bit.

 

After I explained to him that the Food Guide is most definitely NOT saying you have to give up meat (this is a common misconception from my conversations with media and friends/family/social media pals in the past week), it is a great idea to eat more plants of all kinds (veggies, whole grains and plant-based proteins). And, there's room for both animal foods (dairy, poultry, lean meats, fish, eggs) and plant foods on your plate.

 

So, thought I'd share another easy legume recipe that will knock his socks off. (And yours too hopefully!).

 

This salsa is ideal for topping potato nachos or for scooping up with tortilla chips, but I like to eat it straight up by the spoonful! Enjoy!

 

Vibrantly Yours,

 

Shannon
