Enjoy this nutritious meal as a hearty breakfast, quick lunch, or dinner. The dressing and meal components make this such a versatile template that it seems a bit silly to call this a recipe.
We use eggs as a source of protein in this recipe, but you can also use tempeh or tofu if you want a vegan version. If you don’t have a salad or dark, leafy greens on hand, just use veggies and prepare them the way you enjoy them most (e.g. steamed, boiled, roasted, etc.) as the salad dressings go well with non- Salad dressings fit. starchy carbohydrate.
Plus, use whatever type of bean you like or have on hand – we used black beans for this recipe, as pictured, but the possibilities are endless. A note about beans in this recipe is to use either pre-cooked / cooked dried beans or well-rinsed canned beans. If you cook dried beans the traditional way for this recipe, this is not a quick recipe as the bean cook time can be up to an hour. Another option is to use a pressure cooker or an instant pot to quickly cook dried beans.
The wonderful thing about our recipe philosophy at Nutrition Stripped is the flexibility and versatility! Use readily available ingredients, try new foods as often as possible, add what you like, and replace anything you don’t like.
