I hope you’ve all have a great day! Mine has been busy and sadly not very productive but oh well! As I mentioned before, I’m trying to have more complete, balanced meals. Today was a success!
Oats for breakfast, sandwich and soup for lunch, cantaloupe for a snack and dinner…
Just plain delicious! I found this recipe on 101 Cookbooks a long time ago and bookmarked it for future making. I finally got around to doing so. Of course I tweeked the recipe (quite a bit actually) but it still turned out delicious!
Ginormous Bean Chipotles Extravaganza
adapted from 101 Cookbooks Giant Chipotle White Beans
1/2 lb dried lima beans, cooked in salty water
1 tbsp olive oil
few dashes of cayenne, more for more heat
1 tsp chopped garlic
14oz can of diced tomatoes (I only had whole tomatoes so I chopped them up myself, works fine)
2 tsp dried oregano (more if you use fresh)
1 tbsp of adobo from a can of chipotle peppers
1-2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1-2 handfuls of kale, chopped
1-2oz crumbled feta (or other crumbly cheese like cotija… which apparently doesn’t exist in Upstate NY…)
Heat the oil (about medium heat) in a pot, add the garlic and the cayenne, cook for about a minute. Add tomatoes, salt and oregano. Cook for a few minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the cooked beans and adobo sauce. Stir in the kale and cilantro. Transfer to a baking dish, bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
I had mine with red quinoa!
and a huge salad!
You should definitely try this recipe! It was soooo good! If you’re one of those people who hates lima beans (don’t get this by the way) you can probably use any other bean, maybe cannellini? That being said, I thought the lima beans were the perfect bean for this dish! So big and “meaty”! Delicious!!
I seriously loved this flavor combo! Chipotle, feta and cilantro! What could be better!?!
Try it! I bet following the original recipe would be even more delicious! She makes a cilantro pesto that I was just too lazy to make Hence I just stirred in some chopped cilantro…
This is also a great make-ahead dish! I actually prepared it all on Sunday, and today I just stuck it in the oven while my quinoa cooked. Healthy and Delicious dinner in 15 minutes! Voila!
Anyway, now I’m off to read before Lost!! Anyone else as obsessed as I am?!?
Have a fantastic night!!
