Crisp roasted kale, protein-packed black beans, smooth & creamy goat cheese, and spicy Sriracha make this ROASTED KALE WITH BLACK BEANS, GOAT CHEESE & SRIRACHA the perfect, simple. healthy and fast meal for any day of the week.
Hi guys! My name is Ari and I blog over at Ari’s Menu. I’m so excited to join as a contributor for Real Housemoms! I will be sharing my (mostly) healthy recipes with you guys, and today I’m being a total cliche and starting with…KALE. I know, I know, but stay with me for a second! 😉
So I never actually intended to share this recipe with anyone. My husband and I are budgeting to save up for our trip to Italy next summer, so I was just trying to make some simple, healthy meals and use up some of the stuff that gets ignored in our pantry. I bought a big bag of kale from TJ’s and figured It could last me at least a few days….Okay, so like 3. I eat a ton of vegetables, and just a lot of food in general.
I just looked around my pantry one day, roasted the kale, decided to throw in some canned black beans that had been hanging around for a long time because I always buy black beans and then get home and realize I already had 6 cans… Well, then, obviously, goat cheese and Sriracha go on everything. One thing you will learn about me is that I am totally obsessed with goat cheese, sweet potatoes and cilantro. They are my favorite things. Also, I put Sriracha on just about everything because I also love spicy food. You don’t have to though, if you don’t. I won’t judge you. Promise.
Like I said, this was so random and simple, I never expected I would end up blogging about it, but by the third day in a row I ended up making it for lunch, I decided maybe you guys would love it just as much. And I’m pretty sure you will. Also, you can toss a fried egg on top and call it “breakfast”. Or toss a fried egg on top and call it ALL OF THE MEALS because a drippy yolk is also one of those things that makes everything better. Either way, you will love the simplicity of this dish + all of the bold flavor, and you definitely will forget that you are eating a healthy blogging cliche!
