Learning Secret #3 to Making Everyday Healthy Quick
Corn and Bean Salad Base
Organic Corn LOVES...Red and Black Beans, Bell Peppers
2 cups black beans
1 cup Red Kidney Beans
1/2 cup onion
1 1/2 cups organic corn
1 bell pepper, chopped (I often use non-organic because the organic is very expensive)
Baked Corn and Bean Salad With Tomato Sauce
Organic Corn LOVES...Tomatoes
1/2 cup bean and corn salad base
whole lettuce leaves or Ezekiel sprouted grain or brown rice wraps.
a few cilantro sprigs
a few basil leaves julienned
Tomato Sauce for Baked Corn and Bean Salad
1 small can tomato paste
1/4 cup filtered water
1 garlic clove garlic
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp coriander
sea salt to taste
Note: Next time I would add about 1/4 cup of olive oil to make more liquid-ey and bring out flavours and garnish with freshly ground black pepper.
(1) Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
(2) Mix all ingredients together for tomato sauce.
(3) Put bean and corn salad base with 1/2 to 3/4 of the tomato sauce on top in a baking dish and cover with a lid or foil.
(4) Bake for 20 minutes.
(5) Put baked beans mixture in lettuce leaves and top with fresh corn loving herbs like fresh cilantro or basil.
The dish was also asking for or a cheeze like condiment such as gomasio or a sour crème. Here are some ideas:
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
(1) Put all ingredients in a coffee grinder and grind until fine.
Note - You can store gomasio in a glass jar for a month or so and tastes good on everything.
Dairy-Free Sour Crème
I have not written down a recipe for this one, but you can experiment with blending soaked cashews or sunflower seeds with water, a bit of sea salt and some lemon in a blender. Voila!
