Southwest Bean + Corn Pasta SaladAs a vegetarian mama, beans are often my go-to for a rich protein source. I find that they pair well with corn and come together for a full meal when combined into an avocado pasta salad with a cilantro-lime vinaigrette dressing. This dish works well as a main meal or side and can be meal prepped by cooking the pasta beforehand, in addition to chopping your veggies and roasting the corn.
🍱 Perfect for lunchboxes
⏰ Great meal-prep mealBlack Bean Lentil QuesadillasWith Cinco De Mayo coming up this week, I figured I’d share our favorite family-friendly Mexican inspired dishes!
🌱 These quesadillas are packed with THREE sources of plant based protein: black beans, lentils, and our favorite quinoa!
🧀 Such an easy way to change up the classic cheese quesadilla, these are hearty and delicious!
Chunky GuacamoleOur homemade guacamole is such a flavorful dip or appetizer, and is extremely kid-friendly! Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, and they contain high levels of healthy fats that keep you fuller in between meals (so that the kids won't come back 5 minutes later complaining they're still hungry!).
