Hi there all, I hope that where ever you are you're well, safe, happy and thriving away!
So I really wanted to join in last weeks edition of the #naturalMedicine #plantbased #contest, but as I was still munching on my delicious Silverbeet/Kale Roulade, I had no need to waste money that I don't have by cooking more food, as I still have zero income due to our 5-6-7 weeks in lockdown (no idea now...days rolling into each other...🙃...) and which has just been extended indefinitely....
Anyway, So I've got to be really frugal, but I had a great idea to create a #recipe based on chosen #ingredient of #BlackBeans AND now I do need to cook more for dinner, So, I did a quick search on the internet and could not find anyone that has yet created my new and unique #vegan
ChocolateScorpi Special Black Bean Terrine!!!
So I may have just invented a whole new recipe here...😃...but if not....doesn't matter cause mine is really good anyway! 😄
So I started off with a tin of black beans, 2 tins of 4 bean mix- which is a combo of Red Kidney Beans, Butter Beans, Chick Peas and Baby Lima Beans and we all know just how good beans are for us don't we...and if not check out this link here will which give the lowdown on the beanup...https://beaninstitute.com/bean-nutrition-overview/
Then I chopped up these guys and if you think that that sounds nasty, check out the big happy grins on these 2 as they were happy for me to have their lions share of Vitamin C and other goodies along with their delicious cousins- the terrific, tasty Tomato....https://www.healthifyme.com/blog/capsicum-benefits-nutritional-facts-and-healthy-recipes/
So I gently chopped them up and fried everything on low and slow- except for the Zuccnni (it had another job) and added Smoky Paprika, Garlic Salt, Garlic Powder, Lemon Pepper to the mix
then let it cool and blended it into a paste.
While the first creamy mix was cooling, I threw the the second portion of the diced tomato, Capsicum and Purple Onion- which also packs a nutritional puch for our health https://www.webmd.com/diet/health-benefits-red-onion#1 into a fry pan with the chopped Zuccini- which by the way, is also jam packed as Zucchini is rich in several vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial plant compounds. https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/zucchini-benefits#TOC_TITLE_HDR_2
Then mixed them together with some vegan gelatine to give it a lit bit of help, put that into a container and stuck in in the fridge to set.
And this is what I have ended up with- A truly delicious and highly nutritious smoky Mexican flavoured Black Bean Terrine relaxing comfortably on a bed of fresh raw veggies and salad..
Now some might say that my Terrine should actually be called a pate....but I don't care what they say, Black bean does NOT rhyme with pate, but it rhymes with Terrine....😁...🤣..)
And really, how can anyone resist the delicious grins on these 2 eh!
