Black Bean Stew, Corn on the Cob & Crostini Brushed with Herbed Olive Oil – Quick & Easy Dinner Idea!
Hi this is Pranika! For Valentine’s Day I decided to make a special meal for the kids since my husband and I had celebrated earlier in the week. One loves corn and the other adores black beans, hence this meal was born!
Black Bean Stew
¼ large onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, diced
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
2 cups vegetable broth
2 cans black beans (only drain and rinse one of the cans!)
Juice of ¼ lime
1 avocado, cubed and sprinkled with lime juice
Shredded mozzarella cheese
1 green onion, chopped
Drain and rinse one can of beans. Open the other can, but do not drain. Add the olive oil to a small stock pot. Heat to medium and add onion and garlic. Sautee for 2-3 minutes and add the oregano, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.
Stir for 2-3 minutes. Add beans that are drained and rinsed. Mash the beans inside the pot with a potato masher. Next, add vegetable broth and stir up the browned bits of onion, garlic and spices from the bottom of the pan. Add the other can of beans and the juice of ¼ of a lime.
