So, three weeks ago I had the bright idea that we should re-do the kitchen. Aaaand we are in the thick of it. It’s an ongoing process and there is so much to do!! Needless to say, I don’t really feel much like digging through the boxes in the dining room for lots of pans and coming up with clever recipes.
This one happened by accident. Such a happy accident!
I was talking to my mom, musing about what to make for dinner one night and she said to come shop in her overflowing pantry. She has a million cans of things. Once I saw her can of black beans, I knew what to do. I could eat this combination of flavors every day and be cool with it.
It is kind of a long list of ingredients, but your entire, healthy & delicious meal is all in one dish. Can’t get simpler than that! Every ingredient adds another layer of flavor to this dish. It’s a party in your mouth! But if there is something you don’t have on hand, substitutions could easily be made. If you don’t have butternut squash, you could add in a cup of diced zucchini. Mushrooms would also be a lovely addition.
