What to Do with Leftover Black Beans…

Earlier this week, I posted my friend Gina’s recipe for Black Beans. This made a couple meals of beans and rice for us and we still had a good bit of leftovers. I needed to make my bread. Sourdough starter has to be fed on a regular basis; I like to make bread once a week or every other week. And we normally use 1/3 of the dough to make pizza!

I already had the beans and didn’t feel like making tomato sauce. I also had a half a jar of Publix Greenwise Organic Salsa (with no chips to go with them) and a half a block of queso cheese. Another blessing was our neighbor gave us some freshly milled hard white flour and hard red flour. It’s so cool; you can see the wheat germ in it and everything! (I secretly have a desire to mill my own flour someday, but I’m waiting to splurge on the equipment.)

So, I made some whole wheat sourdough pizza crust, topped it with the prepared black beans, salsa and queso before baking. Then I sprinkled fresh organic parsley and cilantro on when it came out of the oven. It was fantastic!
