Week In Beans: Day 4 (Beans on...Pizza???)

On Friday I ran out of time in the quest to have beans every day for a week. Or so I thought. Our normal Friday night tradition of homemade pizza is quick and easy, so I decided to scrap the beans and just do the pizza.

But all hope was not lost! A tupperware container of black beans and corn from a previous meal provided an unusual but good topping for our pizza! I used BBQ sauce for the base and it turned into a southwestern type pizza that we both enjoyed. It provided good leftovers for our lunch while hiking the next day!

Day 3 can be found here

Day 2 is here

Day 1 here:)

And because Chickpeas are the rockstar of all legumes (Isa said that in Vegan with a Vengeance and I agree!), here is her Chickpea Broccoli Casserole..yum!

What a starchy meal. We don't typically eat this many high-carb foods together, but I ran out of time and the potatoes were a leftover than needed to be used up.

Cool idea!
I love creative ways of getting more beans in! I might just have to see how this would work on my kiddies sometime!:-)
Your pic looks great!

chickpeas are my favorite. They remind me of Turkey. We used to eat them dried all the time.

I wanted to thank you for the CVS inspiration. We've been going once week and I credit you for lighting the fire.

Great idea! I'm afraid my picky husband wouldn't go for beans so much though. He's a "meat and taters" kinda guy. Pick picky! Maybe I will be able to sneak some beans into the menu for next week though. I love them!
