Rice and beans constitute a complete meal?
Beans and rice together constitute a complete protein. Both beans and rice by themselves lack specific critical amino acids. However, when consumed together, each adds what the other lacks to produce a complete protein.
What should be used to flavor beans?
5. Roast those Beans! – In addition to pan-frying, baking canned beans is an excellent technique to crisp them up. As with pan-frying, thoroughly pat the beans dry to eliminate excess moisture. Toss beans that have been drained, washed, and dried with olive oil (or avocado oil) and your preferred spices.
- You may add crushed whole seeds (coriander, cumin, fennel, mustard, etc.), woodsy herbs (thyme, oregano, rosemary, sage), red pepper flakes, smashed garlic cloves, and salt and pepper, of course.
- Spread the beans on a rimmed baking sheet (coated with parchment paper for easy cleanup) and bake at a moderately high temperature 400°F-450°F (204°C-232°C) for 15-20 minutes, or until they’re browned in some parts and somewhat crispy.
If there is room on your baking sheet, you may add any vegetables that roast at the same temperature, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, or broccoli. That is what I call a simple sheet pan meal! Try these Tandoori-Roasted Chickpea-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes for a taste of India!
