Sunday morning in the kitchen
Yesterday I found a recipe on Skinnytaste for Southwestern Black Bean Salad and could not wait to try it. I went to the store this morning to get all the goodies. It was very easy to make. I searched for the recipe that appealed to my taste the most on this. I found several. One thing for sure, it had to have fresh cilantro in it. I love the smell and flavor of it. Some recipes do not call for it. One thing I did leave out this time around was the avocado. I love avocado but wanted to do without this first time. You can find the recipe here: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2009/06/southwestern-black-bean-salad.html .
This is a very fresh, colorful treat. I am a chips and salsa girl so this is a nice twist. I will also have this on fish, baked potatoes, and more. It could be used in so many ways!
Here is how it came out…
I also had the urge to make something sweet and decided fudge brownies sounded yummy. To make the skinny version of them, I simply replaced the the egg, oil, and water ingredients with a can of pure pumpkin puree. Doing this also makes them super moist. How do these look?
What are you making on this fabulous Sunday?
