I was asked to bring my Black Bean Salad which everyone loves and I’ve made a hundred times, but here’s another look. This one has black beans, yellow corn, orange bell pepper, purple onion, tomatoes, and cilantro. It’s much better with an avocado too, but we had eaten all we had on hand so it didn’t make it into this salad.
The second salad was Black Rice and Chickpea Salad. This salad also has green onions, sunflower seeds, and chopped dried apricots and is seasoned with a mustard vinaigrette and some cumin. This was really tasty.
I brought sweet treats too! In keeping with my black mood, I made Double Chocolate Mini Muffins. These are a test recipe for Happy Herbivore, so I’ll just let you look.
See, all black!
I've also made a couple of other test recipes for HH – yummy Maple Glazed Veggies…
One more treat – Celine’s Oreo Cookie Cookies. Mmmmmmmmmm! A HUGE hit! I heart all of Celine’s recipes. I especially heart this one because she adapted it from Anna.
