Spicy black bean salad bowl, a heart warming comfort food for all. Loaded with lots of fresh spices, peppers and the most delicious baked potatoes ever! This colorful salad bowl came together in little to no time , thanks to my always present precooked black beans . Black beans are probably one of my favorite. You can tell from the many bean recipes that I absolutely love beans. My ultimate, guilt free source of protein in various forms. From bean burgers, to stews, soups, salads and much more.
When in doubt and hunting for a quick meal, my precooked beans always come to the rescue. Today was one of those days. These days I’m all about quick meals, flavor packed with no fuss. My little girl is down for her afternoon nap, I have a million and one thing to do and I’m starving. what can I whip up for dinner before she’s up again? How about a hearty black bean salad bowl with garlic thyme roasted potatoes.
These potatoes! Oh my world are they delicious! They almost didn’t make it to the salad because I kept telling myself “just one more”. I can’t wait to make more ! These are totally replacing my fries during burger nights. Cutting them thin and baking at high heat gives that extra crunch with each bite. Imagine that with some ketchup, ranch or your favorite aioli recipe. Oh so good I tell ya. These were however mixed in with the beans, giving this salad some extra body .
The incredible flavors and colors of this dish speaks for itself. It’s not only hearty and healthy but also super affordable to make. With under $10 you can feed at least a family of four. Protein packed with just what the body needs. I hope you entertain the idea of making a batch for your family or during your next gathering. You’ll definitely get your guests asking for the recipe.
