Bean recipes?

DS has a corn and nut allergy. We don't eat any animal products that are fed corn so are grocery bill is pretty expensive for a family of 6. We'd like to add in some bean recipes during the week so we aren't eating meat every night. If you have a good meat free bean recipe please share.

Re: Bean recipes?

Sopa it is basically the same as mexican rice except you use small pasta like orzo pasta. I then toss in beans, veggies and in my case meat but you can always skip the meat.

I know the recipes for Mexican rice all call for broth. I use a drizzle of olive oil, garlic powder and salt to make up for the lack of broth. For us the broth was getting epensive to buy. No one has complained of anything lacking.

I haven't tried this one but it looks good. It is a vegan black bean soup.

Re: Bean recipes?

This is one of our favorites, and seasonally, it is really cheap.

We do this one often too and we add more beans than it calls for and leave out the really hot spices for the kids and only use half the tofu it calls for, or make a double batch to freeze for lunches.

Re: Bean recipes?

I am currently essentially vegan (too many food intolerances). We eat a lot of beans.

This is super easy

Dh loves this, the kids were a little meh on it, not sure why. I can't have it anymore because of the cheese and gluten. We can do it with gluten free tortillas and daiya if we want. I usually just make my own black bean and zucchini enchiladas.

We are having this later this week actually. I love it and it is a great way to use up ripe bananas

This might be outside the comfort zone for some kids, mine like it.

I know this says to use corn but I do not. I don't like too much corn in our diet. You can use other veggies (frozen peas are popular here, or even chopped up carrots) or just omit the corn altogether, it's just as good. This is a quick easy meal that I don't have to think too much about.

Re: Bean recipes?

I love beans but most of my family doesn't, so I don't have a lot of bean recipes.
I didn't see where anyone mentioned black bean enchiladas.

You can cut some meat by just taking it out of your favorite recipes. My husband is a huge meat eater and he has been pretty happy with some of the vegetarian and vegan dinners we eat. Veggie fajitas (green and red peppers and onion) topped with avocado and served with rice is one of out favorites. Sweet and sour veggies- pineapple, red and orange peppers, snap peas, green beans, carrots served over rice pilaf. That one might be harder for you though because you need ketchup to make the sauce- doesn't ketchup have corn syrup in it? Veggie pot pie which is just pot pie without the meat- every thing else is the same. I have always done spaghetti and lasagna without the meat, I have just never tasted where it was needed.

I am not big on mushrooms but that is another option for reducing your meat. Look into portabella mushroom recipes. We make a philly cheese steak sandwich using port mushrooms. I don't even taste the mushrooms.

Re: Bean recipes?

I never thought to do veggie pot pie. We love pot pies. I'll also have to look into mushrooms recipes. I know they can be seasoned up really nice.

Some ketchup brands do have corn syrup others do not. So we are lucky with that. DH said he can not give up his ketchup ; )

Here's another bean recipe thread:

It may not all be vegetarian but take a look.

Re: Bean recipes?

Easy-to-make, easy-to-digest lentil stew (Indian dhal):

In bottom of a pan, heat some coconut or other healthy oil over medium heat. Add a selection of some yummy digestive spices, like whole cumin seeds, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, black pepper, turmeric powder, a bit of minced garlic, minced ginger and/or a bit of onion. Roast these in the oil for just a minute or two until very fragrant. Add some diced vegetables (carrots, fennel root, celery, zucchini, whatever your like) and red lentils that have already been well rinsed. Stir all of these up with the spices & oil for a few minutes. Then add water (1-2 inches above the lentil level, depending on how soupy you like it). Bring to a boil, then turn heat down to simmer until lentils are very soft. Garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley, and serve over rice or eat alone.

This whole meal takes about 30 minutes total to prepare and cook.
