So you think you don’t have time to make a health lunch or dinner, I say you can with this little recipe. If you have 2 cans of black beans, a can of tomatoes, a few spices and 10 minutes, 8 of those minutes you can do something else, then you can do this recipe.
Drain and rinse the black beans and pop them into a blender along with the tomatoes undrained
Blend them up, and dump them into a medium sauce pan, along with some cumin, chili powder and a splash of water
Heat to a boil and simmer 5 minutes and your done! So you can eat healthy in a hurry. You can make this in the morning before work, while your fixing breakfast for the kidos to pack for work, or when you come home for lunch, get it going and fold a load of laundry, or when you come home from work, and while it’s cooking, help your kids with homework – I love multitasking! Serve with a simple salad and meal complete
