Notes

Recipe tips:

  • Omit anything in this recipe you don’t care for and add more of what you do–this recipe works well as long as you add in the beans!
  • As written, this recipe is dairy free, gluten free, and egg free.
  • If you’d like to, add a few teaspoons of olive oil or balsamic vinegar.
  • This recipe works great as a black bean salad–I’d double the black beans and leave out the corn!
