Black Bean Sandwich

• 14 oz can black beans

• ½ cup salsa

• 2 tbsp lime or lemon juice

• 2 tbsp cilantro (optional)

• ½ tsp cumin, salt and pepper to taste

Combine ingredients in a food processor and blend slightly, leaving a bit of texture to the beans. Toast bread and spread bean mixture on one side. Top with zucchini and avocado, or other desired toppings.

Navy beans and black beans are versatile choices and make a great addition or base for meals and snacks. And, when you cook them yourself you save a lot of money.

Soak your beans overnight in a bowl of water. Rinse and drain, then boil until soft. Rinse and drain once again, then scoop into small freezer-friendly containers for later use.
