It's been growing for a while now.
Ever since this:
See, I'd seen people make beans like this before- rub them with spices and then oven bake them until they puffed and turned golden but for some unknown reason (along with never trying avocado or almond butter until 2 years ago) I had never tried this myself.
Boy was I missing out!!
What's a girl to do if she feels a fair bit of FOMO (fear of missing out for all those not in the know ;) She makes up for the time without the amazing-ness of oven roasted spiced beans! :)
All hail the beans that have apparently disappeared under the mound of cous cous in this shot:
Then there was many lunches and dinners that followed with beans like this and unfortunately I didn't take pics of them all because I thought you would grow tired of seeing them... no matter how much I was un-tired of eating them!!
Now I'm not saying regular old drained/ cooked beans aren't entirely awesome either and that they don't also make awesome veggie patties or chilies etc. And sometimes I just crave a simple meal like the one below:
Roasted pumpkin, parsnip, potato and white sweet potato (yeh, you know I'm obsessed) with spinach and simple-pimple drained chickpeas and lentils:
What about you?
Current food obsession?
Ever tried oven roasted beans?
What spice/s would you put on yours? I simply can't go back from the ginger and cinnamon vibe now!
That's it for today folks! I hope you have a fabulous day and eat something yummy! Bye for now!! :D
