Ok, so we make a batch of legumes every week for our meal prep. Now what? There are a multitude of ways to enjoy those legumes! Here are some ideas:

  1. Mix them with grain as a side dish or for lunch bowls [LINK]
    • Lentils and/or chickpeas go great with my turmeric quinoa [LINK]
  2. Mash and serve as “refried” beans for side dish to homemade enchiladas or fajitas
  3. Mix them into a veggie omelet or scramble for breakfast
  4. Smash them and spread them into a wrap with guacamole for a bean burrito
    • Try “peacamole” or smashed edamame for extra plant protein power
  5. Bean burgers
