A quick and easy non-meat version of the Mexican-ish dish. Perfect for parties. Serve with Guacamole, sour cream cheese dip, salsa and a side salad. It doesn't get better than this!
A nice summer salsa that's a little more filling. Serve with plenty of tortilla chips - this is very addictive!
Enjoy the fresh flavours of summer's best in this easy, colourful salad. Beans, corn, tomatoes and lime.
The unbeatable bean is a great low-fat, high-fibre protein source that's rich in folate (and other B vitamins) as well as minerals, including iron, potassium and magnesium.
A fabulous vegetarian bite that's deliciously healthy as well as fun to eat. The bean and vegetable mixture has a great spicy kick, and is combined with crunchy salad, grated cheese and creamy yogurt in tortilla wraps.
Crème fraîche is a thick soured cream with a velvety texture. It is available from specialty food stores and delicatessens. Light sour cream may be used instead.
Make this glorious salad when green beans are in season. It is light, fresh and utterly delicious.
This classic Tuscan salad uses cannellini beans, red kidney beans and fresh green beans. Combinations of different beans can be used.
In the past when I have made vegetarian burritos for meat-eaters, they've said that they "miss the meat"... At this point, I used to ask them why they didn't just marry meat if they loved it so much... but now I follow this recipe instead. And all is well. I actually enjoy this recipe with some extra chilli (besides what is in the taco sauce). Also, you can use sweet potato or kumara.
This is great football food or an easy Sunday night meal. Serve with sour cream, guacamole (see my other receipe 'Best Ever Guacamole') and corn chips.
Here's a great vegetarian one-pot meal - corn chips, vegetables, beans and cheese all piled up to make a delicious haystack! Kids love it!
There are tons of delicious spinach salad recipes out there. But this recipe holds a special place in my heart. We have been eating this in my family for years. My auntie contributed this spinach salad to a charity cook book, and we have all been sucking in the spinach with gratitude ever since. The original recipe contained fried bacon pieces. I substitute this for kidney beans, which is a fantastic alternative for vegetarians. You still get the protein, and also the splash of red colour.
Great salad to have with pasta. Great for a hot summer evening, tasty and easy to make.
Mushroom caps make up the base of these healty mini pizzas. They are filled with kidney beans and fresh basil then topped with cheese and tomatoes.
Is it a taco or is it a salad? It is the best of both worlds, lots of lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, kidney beans and chickpeas but still has that great taco taste.
A smooth kidney bean dip, with intense flavour, good with vegetable sticks, crackers or chips. Usually served cold but its very nice warm too. (The total time includes cooling time.)
A simple chilli beans recipe that uses both lentils and kidney beans. It's great as a base for tacos or nachos or just served as a dip with rice or bread. Full of protein, iron and fiber, very important for a healthy vegetarian diet. Sometimes I add a couple of chopped fresh tomatoes to cool it down.
