I was recently given the opportunity to try Better Bean Co.'s products, and boy was I impressed! All of their products are Non-GMO, Gluten free, Vegan, Soy Free, Nut Free, Low Sodium, and packaged in recyclable, freezable, BPA-free containers! How cool is that?!
They are an amazing and healthier alternative to conventional sodium & chemical laden canned bean products! They make several enticing flavors of beans; but I just had to try their Three Sister's Chili. The ingredients for their Three Sister's Chili is as follows:
Red Beans, Black Beans, Water, Onion, Tomatillo, Non-GMO Corn, Squash, Organic Poblano Pepper, Yam, Lime Juice, Olive Oil, Cider Vinegar, Garlic, Sea Salt, Organic Jalapeno Pepper, Ancho Pepper, Cumin, Oregano, Chipotle Pepper. Pure & wholesome as it can get!
I really wanted to create something that would highlight and accentuate the beauty of this product, and this recipe did not fall short! Keeping in line with its ingredients, I decided to roast some polenta (corn) cakes, and top it off with some cumin flavored chickpeas.
This turned out to be an amazingly delicious creation, full of varying textures, depth of flavors, and not to mention -- high protein power!
I highly recommend you find your way to these amazing products, and discover the delicious possibilities for yourself!
For now, dig in & enjoy. . .
Let's start with this sauce. This sauce has an incredible depth of flavor! I find it to be spicy, sweet, tangy and lusciously savory all at the same time.
The best way to prepare this sauce is to make a double (or triple!) batch and store it in the fridge for use over a couple of weeks time.
I find it to be a great sauce for dipping just about any snack you can think of, using it as a marinade, or even as a stir-fry sauce! It is amazingly versatile, and if you love spice and flavor, you will adore the magic that you will find here...
These savory little cakes are something I came up with as a fun snack for my 17 month old. The texture is both delightfully chewy, and fluffy. And, the flavor is so delish! I promise.
While easy for little hands to grasp as a finger food, they also make a wonderful appetizer or snack for adults.
These tasty morsels are also full of fiber & protein, and being baked--they are super duper healthy, too!
When I threw these veggie burgers together, I admittedly didn't expect the textures & flavors to turn out as well as they did. I was beyond pleasantly surprised--these burgers are a real keeper!
My inspiration for these came from wanting to incorporate more legumes into my little one's diet. And, boy was I happy that he loved these as much as I did!
These delightful vegetarian patties are chock full of protein & fiber, hold together & cook incredibly well, and truly taste great just about any way you choose to eat them!
These fritters have a delightful combination of flavors, and are
simply put -- super delicious!
With the healthful properties of millet, and the subtle sweetness of butternut squash, you will find these tasty fritters to also be satisfyingly guilt-free & filling...
These crunchy & wholesome fritters are a great way to use that bag of peas sitting in your freezer! And with the addition of yogurt for some extra heartiness and calcium, these fritters make a great snack or meal any time of day...and are especially enjoyed by the little ones!
I'm a bit fritter crazy. I find you can make nearly anything into some sort of fritter. And who doesn't love a crunchy & flavorful snack ripe for the dipping?
Also (as you may have gathered), I make a lot of fritters...but something about this particular combo proved something special. So, I share it with you...
