Black Bean Pasta

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday. Well, I hope it’s going well for you because that alliteration felt so good. As we continue pasta (sauce) week, it’s important to remember there are some people who can’t have tomatoes, in addition to many other things. This recipe is for you 🙂

The original concept of this dish was a cold pasta salad, and the truth is, I don’t know what makes a pasta salad. I’ve actually never eaten it before, and any time I see them in stores, they look eh. So, as I often do, I decided to do my own thing. Kid Two and Kid Three really enjoyed the dish. The Papa, who doesn’t like beans, and who really doesn’t like the GF noodles said that “it was really good for what it is”. Yes dear friends, that was a compliment. We learned that this is good eaten both warm and cold, but I think Kid Three enjoyed it more when it was warm. I think it has to do with these particular noodles. Once they’re cold, they’re not the same. Remember, these recipes are designed to be guides, and to get your creativity flowing!

Ingredients:
385 grams Tolerant Organic Red Lentil Pasta  (given the shape of the noodle, weight is the best way to measure)
29 ounce can Eden Organic Black Beans (1 large can, or 2 regular sized cans)
2 cans 2.25 ounces sliced Black Olives
3 TBSP Raw Organic Honey
2 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Organic Dill
1 tsp Dried Organic Parsley
1 tsp Organic Lemon Juice
6 TBSP Sir Kensington’s Vegan Mayo
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Organic Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp Organic Dill

First, cook your pasta, drain, and set it aside. It’s OK if you don’t use Tolerant GF noodles, and opt for something else. The amount is what’s important. However, I would advise against spaghetti, as long noodles won’t complement the beans very well. Next, put your beans in a medium pot, and cook on medium-low heat (275). As the beans cook, add in everything except for the mayo, lemon, and dill. Cook the beans for 15 minutes. With the beans still hot, add in the noodles, mayo, lemon, and dill. Mix everything together very well, and enjoy.
