Beans, Greens, Cornbread and … Avocado?

Yep, this weird combination of food was our dinner last night. Well, I guess only the avocado is weird. After being sick for nearly two weeks (!), I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things. For that reason, I’ve been keeping our dinners pretty simple. This particular meal is really easy and cheap to throw together.

I mixed cans of pinto and kidney beans into a pan, added a bit of liquid smoke, a bit of vegetable bouillon for the flavor and saltiness, and freshly cracked black pepper. For the greens, I just cooked down kale in olive oil and added salt and pepper.

For serving, I drizzled a little olive oil and hot sauce onto the beans and added sliced white onion. I also drizzled a little apple cider vinegar on the greens. For this particular dinner, I had an avocado that needed to be used so I sliced it on the side because why not? I’m a sucker for avocado on anything or even by itself.

CSA Week 3

This week’s CSA pickup proved to be more of the same as the previous week, but with the addition of green onions. I’m really hoping that the share starts to change up a bit in the next few weeks because I’m finding it difficult to create entire meals out of what I have, which was my initial plan going into this. But still, check out the beautiful purple color on those radishes! Gorgeous!

I do plan on making stir-fry tomorrow with the pac choi from last week and the soy sauce I received a couple of weeks ago. I’ll be sure to write a post for it this weekend.

Happy Friday!
