No Meat Zone Recipes: Vegan Black Bean Mango Tango


Black Bean Mango Tango

Being in house-selling mode, I’m all about simple, inexpensive eating.

This recipe does the trick with flavorful protein, easy clean-up, and even a dash of nutrient-dense thyme, which contains iron, manganese, and calcium. It’s been used since ancient times for its culinary, aromatic, and medicinal properties.

Here you have it:
  • Olive oil
  • ¾ C onion, chopped
  • ¾ C green or red pepper, chopped
  • 1 C tomatoes, diced
  • 1 can of black beans, drained (reserve liquid)
  • ½ t thyme
  • 1 t garlic salt
  • 3 T apple cider vinegar
  • 1 mango, diced or sliced
  • lime
  • white rice

Heat oil in a large skillet, add onion and pepper, cook for a few minutes.

Add tomatoes, beans, spices, liquid, and vinegar. Cook for several more minutes.

Serve over rice with a squeeze of lime juice and mango.
