What is a delicious, high fiber recipe using beans?
It's essential to work a fair amount of fiber into a normal diet to aid in the digestion process and to promote overall good health. As you've probably heard, beans are a good source of fiber and preparing meals that contain them is an excellent way to work that valuable fiber into your diet. Here is a tasty high fiber recipe for black bean pita pockets:
- 1 ½ cans of black beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 tablespoons of chopped pimento
- 2 tablespoons of parsley
- 1-¼ tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 1-½ tablespoons of water
- ¼ teaspoon of dry mustard
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- Halved pita pockets
Put the beans, pimento and parsley in a big bowl and stir. Put the remaining ingredients, except for the pita pockets, in a container with a lid. Add salt and pepper to taste then shake until all of the ingredients are mixed thoroughly. Then, pour the mixture into the bowl with the bean blend. Allow the concoction to sit for about a half an hour to allow the flavors to merge. Finally, serve the mixture in pitas.
