This is a recipe I tried out just recently, and it’s a winner. It’s healthy, tasty, and very easy to put together! A couple people have asked me for the recipe, so here it is:

You’ll need-

2 Tbsp. olive oil

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

¼ c. red onion- finely chopped

¼ c. green onion

1 clove garlic- finely chopped

1 tsp. Garam Masala (Indian spice blend- available at most grocery stores or Outpost)

¼ tsp. Spanish paprika

Pinch of salt

1 15 oz. can of pinto beans- drained and rinsed

Preparation is simple. Combine the oil, lemon juice, onion, garlic, and spices in a medium-sized bowl and mix well. Drain and rinse the beans, and stir into the spice mixture. Best served chilled.

This is a great dish for fall. The spices are warming and beneficial for the digestive system. The green onion and garlic are excellent during cold season to help your body ward off infection! Great for lunches or as a side dish.
