I love easy recipes. Especially recipes that require a small number of ingredients. As part of my class for my Forks Over Knives certification, we had to create two recipes using the same legume. I chose black beans as they are so versatile and so easy to work with. My first recipe were these Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers, and this week I introduce my second recipe- Avocado Black Bean Mash.
The idea was inspired by an old recipe I posted about 2 years ago- Chickpea Mash. It is a very easy 3-ingredient recipe and all I did is substitute the chickpeas in the original recipe for black beans in this new version. Same avocado and lemon, different bean.
And really, the lemon could be left out, but I just love how it brightens the flavor when combined with everything else. And lemon takes the place of other seasoning.
And there is no need for any fancy mixers or gadgets, just a potato masher.
The mash makes for a great dip for pita chips, but Mr. Beet and I love this on bread with veggies.
How can you go wrong with such a simple and healthy dish?
