The Best Blessed Black Bean Beauty Bowl is a new go-to favorite in my house. After meal prepping those amazing Easy Cuban Black Beans, this bowl is a must-have for that week. Pairing the Easy Cuban Black Beans with brown rice, steamed kale, Perfect One-Ingredient Plantains prepared in the air fryer and topped off with Spicy Chipotle Cream Sauce makes for the perfect meal. There's absolutely no oil in this recipe. If you omit or just go easy on the Spicy Chipotle Cream Sauce, this bowl is also low fat.
If you haven't made the Easy Cuban Black Beans, you can substitute one can of black beans that have been drained, rinsed, and seasoned with (dry or water) sautéed onion and garlic. However, I highly recommend taking the time to prepare the Easy Cuban Black Beans.
The Best Blessed Black Bean Beauty Bowl has 6 key ingredients
Nutritionally, this meal checks all the boxes. It's high in protein, fiber, antioxidants, phytochemicals, iron, potassium, magnesium, and other micronutrients. It's heart-healthy and nutritionally balanced:
whole grains ✔️
starchy vegetable ✔️
cruciferous green vegetable✔️
As far as the taste goes, the sweetness of the plantain pairs beautifully with the savory black beans, slightly bitter kale, and spicy chipotle seasoning. The acid from the lime juice ties it all together. This meal will leave you satisfied, nourished, and feeling beautiful inside and out.
My favorite dessert after eating this meal is a serving of whatever fruit is in season—fresh mango, watermelon, sliced apple, sliced pear, juicy peach, grapefruit, or a few mission figs.
A special thank you to Mindy for inspiring the creative name for this beautiful meal. 💗
