This recipe is easy and super delicious. Packed with flavor and nutrition, it is the perfect meatless Monday dinner. My son loves it over cilanro lime rice or with a piece of warm crusty bread.

    Stir in the lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper.

  • Double the beans for more protein.
  • Add cauliflower, or swap cauliflower for potatoes for less starch.
  • Add red pepper flake or your favorite hot pepper for spice.
  • Use full -fat coconut milk for a creamier texture.
