It’s summer, I am sweating. Guess what I don’t want to do, slave in the kitchen for any amount of time.
What I have been doing, is cooking beans at night. So I will make a big pot of beans at night when my house doesn’t feel like it’s going to burst into flames, then in the day I can just throw things together that are cold. Try it out, this one is my current favourites, I have really been loving mango lately.
4 cups cooked black beans (2 cans will work too)
2 mangos – peeled, seeded, chopped (watch a YouTube video of how to prepare a mango)
2 red peppers – seeded, chopped
1 bunch of green onions – chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 garlic cloves – finely chopped
2 jalapeño – seeded, chopped
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
Zest and juice of one lime and one orange
Mix it all in a bowl and let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour before enjoying.
