Cumin Roasted Chickpea Polenta Cakes + Three Sisters Chili (Gluten-Free, Vegan)
Super flavorful and healthy Cumin Roasted Chickpea Polenta Cakes topped with Better Bean Co.’s amazing Three Sisters Chili. Gluten-free, vegan, and packed with protein!
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!
