For the Bean Mixture:

  • 1/4 cup black beans cooked (fresh or from a can)
  • 1/4 cup red or white quinoa or a blend of both, cooked
  • 1/4 cup frozen spinach
  • 1/4 cup frozen corn
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. To make this meal in 15-20 minutes, first prep the carrots for the Maple Roasted Colored Carrots . Instead of carrots, you can also use broccoli or mushrooms - Simply wash, cut into large pieces, toss with a little olive oil/salt/pepper, and roast in the toaster oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. While the veggies are roasting in the toaster oven, continue to prep the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, slice the avocado, and prepare the Sweet Jalapeno-Lemon Cream Sauce (if you did not make this ahead of time).
  3. To Prepare the Bean Mixture. Combine the cooked black beans, frozen spinach, and frozen corn in a glass bowl. Add a small amount of water and microwave for 2-3 minutes until the corn and spinach defrost completely. 
  4. Toss in the cooked quinoa, and season to taste with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and a few drops of your favorite hot sauce (optional).

  5. In each bowl, add some of the Bean Mixture. Then place some cherry tomato halves, sliced avocado, roasted veggie (carrots or other veggie of choice), and tortilla chips on top.
  6. Drizzle on some Sweet Jalapeno-Lemon Cream Sauce and add a few drops of your favorite hot sauce (optional). Garnish each bowl with some freshly chopped cilantro and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This is a general guideline on how to create a bowl. Exact amount of ingredients may vary depending on your preference.



My favorite hot sauce to use is Cholula
