Refried Beans
It's always great to have a batch of refried beans on hand. This staple of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine goes great as a side with grilled proteins and all the classic fixings, in a bowl as part of a taco salad, in tacos, burritos, and quesadillas... the possibilities are as they say, endless. In the photo attached, they're being served as part of a breakfast taco with potatoes and chorizo.

Grilled Fava Beans
There are lots of fava bean recipes out there. Sure, you've had those bright green lima bean-looking cuties drizzled with olive oil and topped with cheese. And if you didn't have the fava beans in a restaurant and you went through the torture that is peeling them, twice (yes, there is another covering over the individual beans themselves), you're going to love grilled fava beans. Grilling them basically steams the beans into creamy submission inside their own pods. This makes peeling them much easier, since the outer pods become charred and pliable. If the fava beans are the early ones, that are small, you don't even need to peel off that second covering. If they are the larger beans, they slip right out of those extra skins.

 Diabetic-Friendly Baked Beans
This baked bean recipe uses orange juice and maple syrup to add sweetness instead of refined sugars and forgoes ketchup in favor of plain diced tomatoes. These diabetic-friendly sugars don’t cause glucose spikes but still add the traditional sweetness that is synonymous with a good bowl of baked beans.
