Recipe: Bean Pizzas

Bean Pizzas

Serves: 4

 

Ingredients:

1 can beans (white beans, black beans, refried, any type will do)

About 1 cup vegetables, assorted (chop to bite-sized pieces if needed)

2 pieces string cheese, optional

Salt, optional

Pepper

Spices as desired (Mrs. Dash blend, garlic, red pepper flakes, oregano, etc.)

 

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375° If you have parchment paper or a nonstick silicone mat, you can use it to line a baking sheet.  This is not necessary, so if you don’t have either, don’t worry.
  2. Drain and rinse beans if using canned, whole beans. Mash in a bowl with a potato masher.  Add in spices as desired a little at a time (garlic, onion powder, red pepper flakes, oregano and salt (optional) and pepper).  Set aside.
  3. Heat vegetables in microwave or on stove top, not to cook but just to warm.
  4. Prepare string cheese if needed by chopping or pulling apart.
  5. Toast bread in toaster or in oven slightly for a few minutes to firm up (slightly brown bread).
  6. Spread about 1/3-1/2 cup bean paste on each piece of toast, top with vegetables and cheese.
  7. Heat in oven for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted and the ingredients are heated through.
  8. Enjoy!
