Black Bean “Pasta”

Standard

Rob and I picked up a new item at Costco last week:

Just look at all the protein in these babies!

I love black beans, so I’m very curious about these. They have great reviews, too! Of course, a Mexican-style dish makes the most sense to me. A red curry sauce is also suggested on their website. I’ll try that when I’m cooking just for me. But I am also considered making a light garlic cream sauce and just adding some veggies. I’m planning to try this “pasta” out next week. How would you use these?

But as for this week:

  1. Hmm those noodles look really interesting! I’ve never cooked anything like that before so I’m not sure what I’d do with it. I wonder how strong the black bean flavor is. It sounds really cool! I’d definitely give it a shot 🙂

  2. Now you get a bullet point comment!

    1. Interesting pasta – can’t wait to see if you like it.
    2. I am making this for dinner tonight, except I am skipping the sandwich so I can eat the carbs of the potatoes sprinkled with feta cheese. http://www.thesugarhit.com/2014/08/authentic-greek-chicken-souvlaki-recipe.html
    3. Mattie’s restaurant – look at all those beers on tap! #lucky This does sound amazing though – I like a good turkey burger every once in a while!
