All Natural Diabetes Cookbook
by Jackie Newgent
Trying to find aflavorful (and fast!) way to add fiber to your meal plan? Look no further. One word describes these beans: yum!
Serves 4, Serving size: scant 1/2 cup



Ingredients

• 2 tsp peanut or canola oil
• 1 large garlic dove, minced
• 1 small jalapeno pepper with some seeds, minced
• 1 (15-oz) can organic pinto beans, drained
• 1/4 cup natural vegetable broth
• 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
• 1 Tbsp lime juice


Directions
1.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and jalapeno and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the beans and broth and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until the liquid is nearly evaporated.

2. Remove from the heat and stir in the cilantro and lime juice. Serve hot as a side or cool as a salad.

Food Flair
If you're serving these beans hot, lightly top them with shredded Monterey Jack cheese immediately after stirring in the cilantro and lime juice. For a more substantial side - or perhaps an entree-stir the Southwestern Cilantro-Lime Pintos into steamed brown rice.
