.5 cup drained and rinsed or homemade black beans.
.5 cup cooked red lentils
1 cup bean sprouts (I used .5 c. mung bean sprouts and .5 cup red lentil sprouts. but you can use any seed sprouts you have on hand)
.5 cup cooked pumpkin
1 tsp. cinnamon
.5 oz. chopped walnuts
1 cup chopped tomato
.5 cup chopped sweet peppers
.5 cup chopped red or purple onion
.25 tsp. salt
.5 to 1 tsp. chili powder
.5 tsp. Braggs Liquid Aminos
Colavita Basalmic Vinegar
For me, 1 serving is enough for me with a piece of fruit like an orange. But if you need more calories, consider a whole grain muffin or Krackers. It could also be served over Black Japonica rice or a grain of your choice.
The Prep time includes time to chop veggies and walnuts. If you already have those in your refrigerator and pantry chopped, your prep time will only include time to open containers and measure out what you need.
In large fry pan start onions and peppers with a little water. After 5 minutes add the rest of the ingredients. Stir and simmer for 25 minutes.
Serving Size: Makes 2 servings about 1 1/4 c. each.
Number of Servings: 2
