Using Legumes-a Healthy Start

Posted on 20 September, 2014 at 0:30

Bean Pate

1 Can of RINSED Kidney Bean (Red or White)

I have also used pinto beans, lentils, black beans and mixed beans.  Each will give you a slightly different flavour

1 TB of lime or lemon juice (again each one has a different flavour so experiment with each)

1 TB of tomato paste or tomato sauce

1 TB of cilantro

I have also used fresh basil, oregano or parsley.  Each is slightly different.

Hot Sauce-to taste

Blend in a blender or food processor.  Pour into airtight containers.

I use this as a base for sandwiches, as a spread on crackers, or as a dip for nacho chips.  

It is high in fibre, magnesium and protein.  An excellent way to introduce legumes into your life!!
