Needing some recipes!

Ok mamas, heres what ive got...

10 red apples
bookoos of canned applesause
bookoos of canned black beans.

I need recipes for all of them. But not together! I dont want to make applesauce with the red apples, since I have soooo many cans of it already.

If you've got any good ideas for my oddly hoarded food I want to hear them!!

I made http://gnowfglins.com/2011/04/18/app...atmeal-soaked/ the other day and I think it could use 1 or 2 more apples and you could likely replace the rapadura for apple sauce. I think that would be really tasty! It is hearty and it has lasted us 3 meals so far with likely an easy 4th.

I can only think of bean taco's or salads for your black beans. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Re: Needing some recipes!

How about baked ham with cinnamon apples and what ever. Then left over ham to make black bean soup? I have 2 really good recipes for black bean soup- one purees half the beans and is thicker and the other is thin broth type.

I like black beans with sauted onions and garlic- i usually throw in some tomatoes. Or black beans and rice- got a recipe I like for that too.

Applesauce I really don't have anything- my kids eat it daily and I use it in place of oil, but that wouldn't use a ton. Pancakes/waffles with applesauce?

Apples- homemade empandas/ hand held apple pies- both can be frozen and cooked or heated later. You can core a whole apple the stuff it with butter, butter oatmeal and cinnamon and microwave.

That,s all I can come up with

Re: Needing some recipes!

We eat tons of apples as snacks or diced in oatmeal with cinnamon. I second the apple pies a PP mentioned. "Fried apples" are the best! I used this recipe. Just back off the sugar a little bit, since they're not tart apples.

Applesauce can be used as a healthy sub for oils in baking. It also makes everything super moist!

I have no ideas for the beans other than soup.

I have tried lots, most include garlic, onion and cumin

My favorite recipe:
1 teas olive oil
1 onion chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup cooked rice
1 1/2 cups broth (vegi or chicken) you could just use water
1 can diced tomatoes with juice (or fresh equiv)
1 teas ground cumin
1/4 teas cayene papper (I usually use in between 1/4 and 1/8)
3 1/2 cups canned black beans

I also add 1/2 cup frozen corn

Saute onion and garlic for a few mins, add rice and saute 2 mins. add broth/water, tomatoes and corn if your using it. Bring to boil, cover and lower heat. cook 20 mins (longer if your using brown rice- I do and I still end up draining some juice off). Then add beans an spices (and canned corn if you want to use that) heat through.

Re: Needing some recipes!

ok just to be clear, do I cook the rice before adding it or does it cook during the 20m?

It cooks during the 20 mins- that's using a brown rice that normally takes 10 mins to cook. So if your using a rice that would take 20 min boil time you'll probably need to cook for 30-35 mins.
