In the heat of the summer it’s crucial to have easy-to-prepare recipes on hand that don’t require the use of your stove or oven. This meal checks off all of the important boxes: full of fiber and proteins from the black beans, and healthy fats from the avocado. Plus, it’s so simple to throw together! Feel free to experiment with other types of beans or veggies.
