Whether it’s with chips or on a burrito, salsa is an extremely versatile side.  Adding black beans to the mix allows even more flavor in the salsa and not to mention nutrients!


1 can of organic black beans

1 white or red onion

1 bell pepper

1 lime

1 tomato – better boy or roma

10-12 sprigs of cilantro

salt to taste

1/4-1/2 of cayenne powder (optional)

1/2 tsp of adobo (optional)

1/2 tsp of fajita seasoning (optional)


  1. Rinse and drain black beans.
  2. Mince all vegetables and add to mix.
  3. Juice lime and mix.
  4. Add spices to taste.

Simple and easy recipes are a must.  One cup of black beans alone contains over 40 g of protein; this side also includes great sources of vitamin C and E, biotin, and more!  Vegan recipes can be simple and nutritious as long as you know where to look.
