MCLV Mange: Tomato & Bean Salad

This Summer’s top cooking ingredient was tomatoes. I got so many gorgeous varieties in my Eatwell CSA box the past few months that I had to keep coming up with new recipes to utilize all the goodness.

One of my go-to’s became this delicious, easy, tomato & bean salad. I always have all the ingredients on hand so it’s perfect to throw together on weekends or even on a weeknight when I needed a side with dinner.

  • 1 Cucumber diced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive or hemp seed oil
  • 1 Teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 Teaspoon each chili powder, salt & turmeric

Optional additions: Avocado, celery, cilantro, parsley… Anything you’d like really. Which is always my favorite kind of recipe.

This keeps really well – If you’re not using avocado – So seal it up in a container and eat all week!

One of the oh-so-gorgeous Instagram trends right now are the veggie and protein-filled Buddha bowls. What I love about these tasty bowls is that not only are they beautiful, but they’re easy to make & incredibly healthy.

You can add whatever you have in your fridge for a tasty combination of nutrient-dense produce, protein, and fiber.

Read on for one of my favorite Fall combinations!

Ingredients:

  • Sautéed green beans {coconut oil + green beans = heaven}
  • Tomato & bean salad {recipe coming soon!}
  • Sautéed sweet potatoes*

*I adore sweet potatoes so when I get a few I cube them and boil to soften. From there you can stick them in the fridge in Tupperware and use them for al sorts of delicious recipes. This type is perfect as a side for dinner or even with eggs for breakfast. Just throw some coconut oil on a pan, heat, and sauté until you achieve your desired consistency.

Directions:

  • Add ingredients to bowl
  • Eat!
