Beans, beans, and more beans

27 Jan

K wakes up in the morning asking for rice and beans. Seriously, this kid would happily eat nothing but for every meal. The rest of us prefer a little more variety in our diets, but the next two weeks’ dinners are fairly bean heavy. While Michael prefers only black beans, the rest of us are happy with black beans, pinto beans, great northern, kidney – you name it. The great thing about beans too is that they’re super healthy, super cheap, and if you use canned, super convenient. And since there are so many varieties, there is bound to be one kind even the pickiest eater will like (cough, cough, Michael with his black beans). Since I tweak a lot of recipes, I’ve linked most of these to my own version but tried to include the original inspiration on there somewhere. Some others I’ve just linked directly to the original as its good and easy enough without any changes. So with that in mind, I give you the next two weeks of family dinners!

Tilapia baked in couscous with roasted broccoli

Update: I made this tonight and it was a huge hit. Both boys loved the fish and I thought the couscous was really fantastic – I used smoked sundried tomatoes and it went really well with the spices. This will definitely be added to the rotation – B has already asked that I make it again.
