Mexican-Style Bean Topping

love cilantro. I know that some people aren’t crazy about it (and a lot of people even think it tastes like soap!), but I adore the flavour of fresh cilantro! I could eat it every day (and sometimes I do).

Here’s a recipe for a Mexican-style topping of onions, black beans, lime juice… and delicious cilantro!

Mexican-Style Bean Topping

  • 2/3 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 can black beans (540 mL), drained and rinsed

Mix all of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate to let the flavours blend.

Serve over your favourite lean protein — chicken, tilapia, and lean steak are my favourites! In the picture above, I served it over 6 oz of tilapia, with some green beans, Wowbutter, and a baked sweet potato. Delicious!!

Makes 4 servings.
