I saw this post in vegancooking and decided to try out the recipe. I didn't have all the ingredients the recipe called for, but it seemed like a pretty informal recipe, so I just threw some things together to see how it turned out... it was delicious. I've made healthy/organic/vegan recipes before, but they've NEVER turned out all that well (if anything, they were okay, but never as good as what they were substituted for). But this recipe was just amazing, and I wanted to post my version of it.
1 can of red beans
about 1/2 cup organic sliced almonds
about 1/3 cup pine nuts
a few shakes of sesame seeds
salt (to taste)
dill weed (to taste)
I just lightly toasted the nuts and seeds in olive oil, then added salt and dill weed to the beans in a bowl and tossed it all together. The mixture of the cool/warm, soft beans and the crunchy warm/hot nuts and seeds, with just a soft accent of salt and dill weed, was so amazing, and it makes enough to eat half and have the rest later (if you can wait that long!).
I'm so happy with how this turned out, and it literally took me three minutes to make... I'm usually so inept in the kitchen, so I'm very excited about this. Let me know if you tried it out with any variations of your own!
