Chicken Tinga Tostadas With Bacony Black Beans

Here’s everything you could possibly want on your chicken tostadas (and then some): smoky, spicy tomato salsa, bacon-y refried beans, and a smattering of cilantro and cheese. Use skin-on, bone-in, chicken breasts—they’re juicier and more flavorful than their skinless, boneless counterparts—and if you prefer mild heat, reduce the adobo sauce to 1 tablespoon. Leftovers keep best stored separately and assembled when you’re ready to eat.

Roasted Beans (V, GF)

Roasted beans are an easy snack rich in protein. My favourite are definitely edamame but you can prepare any beans this way. Just toss them with some olive oil and salt (and any other spices you enjoy) and roast them in the oven. They’re great as a snack on their own or as a topping on soups. You can also incorporate them in some other dish.

Pesto Pasta With White Beans and Halloumi

This vegetarian weeknight dinner comes together in under an hour and is made super special with the addition of halloumi. It looks like a fluffy cloud when grated, and it gives the pasta just the right amount of salty tang. Be sure to use a very fine grater, like a Microplane, when you prepare the halloumi, as it will only add to the fluffy effect (which is what you’re after). This is a full meal in its own right, but you can also serve it alongside a big green salad.

Recipe: Cinnamon, Chocolate and Black Bean Brownie

Why? My daughter asked in disgust. Why would you put black beans in a brownie? Why indeed! Well, firstly I believe we should always be open to trying different things, and secondly different people have different tastes and reasons for trying both savoury dishes and sweet treats. So this treat is less sweet, has a slightly different texture to a regular brownie, but is without doubt more nutritious. It is tasty – perhaps a taste that needs to be acquired in my daughter’s case – and it is also gluten-free. So don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.

Brooklyn Delhi Founder Chitra Agrawal Serves Weeknight Dinners with a Generous Helping of Sauce

For Brooklyn-based chef and cookbook author Chitra Agrawal, weeknight dinner often calls for a generous helping of sauce. And for good reason, too—Agrawal is the founder of Brooklyn Delhi, a brand of Indian-inspired condiments and sauces. Since 2014, she's launched several lines of delicious products, from curry ketchup to tomato achaar, an Indian tomato-chili sauce featuring locally-grown produce. It's not surprising, then, that when she needs a quick meal from scratch, Agrawal will reach for her own simmer sauces and pairs them with protein or vegetables and rice. What's more, the culinary inspiration seems to be a two-way street, as much of what she eats with her family inspires new Brooklyn Delhi products. "I also test out new recipes on my kids," adds Agrawal. "For good or [for] bad, they always tell me what they think."

Chefs have been serving its heirloom legumes for years, from classic refried pintos with tacos to caviar-topped beans. Sando has played a critical role in educating locals on the difference between standard canned beans and heirloom versions, many chefs said.
