Cooking with Herbs and Spices
Cooking with both fresh and dried herbs adds flavor to your recipes, while often adding desirable health properties too. I incorporate fresh or dried herbs and spices daily in my recipes. I sometimes even use herbs and spices when cooking breakfast! Give it a try and you’ll be glad you did. Read More...
Here’s an easy way to incorporate a bit of spice into a quick to prepare, tasty casserole!
Molasses Two-Bean Bake (Low fat Cooking)
Makes 3 to 4 servings
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 medium sweet onions, chopped
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (more or less, to taste)
1 heaping tablespoon blackstrap molasses
1/4 cup organic catsup
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Toss to combine. Pour into a medium casserole. Cover and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Serve with crusty bread, quinoa or brown rice on the side. A crisp green salad or steamed green vegetables such as broccoli or asparagus makes a nice side dish for this casserole too!
