Last week I had another successful trip to Costco (love it there, Kirkland for life). I stumbled upon one of the many sample stations I
stalk out walk by on my weekly trip to the mecca of goodness. This particular station was giving away samples of a darkish/black pasta, which didn’t look all that great. Still, being a sample, I took one. But before I let that pasta enter my mouth, I asked the woman why it had such a dark color. She informed me that this pasta was derived solely from black beans!! Black beans, people!! I was so excited because I for one am a big fan of the bean, and it is packed with so much fiber and protein.
I prepared it with a summer veggie medley. I sautéed garlic, vidalia onions, red peppers, corn, string beans, and spinach in extra virgin olive oil (infused with garlic), see below. I bought this at HomeGoods for $4! Also, accompanying that is my white truffle oil spray which I also got at HomeGoods for $4!
Once all is done, I sprinkled with goat cheese (trader joes). It was so good that I made it twice in the past 3 days. So yummy and defiantly a healthy alternative.
What are some healthy alternatives you have been cooking up?
