Black Beans 5 Ways! Today we’re making 5 super easy vegan recipes using black beans. These recipes can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack & dessert (or for any time of day really!). All of the recipes are oil-free, WFPB-friendly (whole food plant based) and great for beginners. If you don’t have black beans, you can sub other beans as well! 😋 Hope you find some inspiration from these ideas.

Chickpeas 5 Ways!
Black Bean Breakfast Casserole:
1 c. oil-free hasbhrowns
1/3 c. chopped bell pepper
1/4 c. riced cauliflower
1/2 c. black beans (you can season these with some onion powder & paprika for more flavor if you prefer!)
1 container liquid JUST Egg*
1/4 tsp. kala namak (aka black salt)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
+ green onions
Bake @ 375F for 45 mins.
*If you don’t want to use JUST Egg, I would suggest using a recipe with tofu + chickpea flour such as this one: and add black beans to it!
Cilantro Lime Dressing
1/2 c. white beans
1/2 c. soaked cashews
1-2 cloves garlic (I used 1)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Juice of 1 1/2 limes
Handful cilantro (use the stems too to avoid waste!)
1/2 – 3/4 c. water (start with less and add more as needed)
1 TBL chopped jalapeño (I subbed with pickled hot pepper rings)
Blend all & taste! Adjust seasoning as needed.
Black Bean Mango Salsa (I loosely followed this recipe)
I modified by using 1 tsp. lime zest + juice of 1 lime & omitted Frank’s Red Hot sauce
I also subbed jalapeño with pickled hot pepper rings + added corn & tomato
You can serve this salsa with these oil-free tortilla chips!
