Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • One 15-ounce can no-salt-added black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, minced
  • 1 Cup mushrooms, chopped coarsely
  • 1 Cup quinoa, cooked
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 Tablespoons brown rice flour or whole-wheat flour
  • 2 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce or tamari

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a standard bread pan or use a nonstick pan and set aside. Mash the black beans in a large bowl and combine all of the ingredients until evenly combined. Transfer to the pan, and pat down firmly and tightly using a spatula. Bake until firm and browned on the outside, for 45-60 minutes. Allow the loaf to cool and firm up before serving, about 15-20 minutes.

Pie Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Pie Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
