I’m loving all things warm and gooey right now. It’s getting colder and darker and I’m dying to feel snuggly and cozy.
When I think of snuggly and cozy foods, healthy isn’t what pops into mind. I think of processed casseroles, lasagnas, and fake ingredient filled mac n’ cheese. I wanted to change the script and I came up with this recipe.
If I’m being totally transparent, I might have gone a tad overboard on the cheese, so feel free to backoff on it if you are looking for something a notch healthier. Or go without if you are up for it!
Aside from being a well balanced meal, this gooey Mexican dream of a dish has lot’s of fiber! You know I’m totally obsessed with soluble fiber to help get those guts of ours in tip-top shape, and this dish has plenty. Lot’s of black beans, carrots, a bell pepper, organic corn, and avocado boosts the soluble fiber load making it a gut nourishing dish that is delish.
I hope you like it!
Serves about 6
* To rice the carrots, wash them thoroughly and then chop them into large chunks. Add to a food processor and process until the carrot pieces look like the size of grains of rice.
Meal Prep Tip- Make it at the beginning of the week and enjoy throughout the week. You can portion it out or keep it in the casserole dish and pull from it as needed. The flavors actually get better as it sits!
