Here is a great kid-friendly meal that you can throw together in the morning or even the night before, and when you walk in the door after a long day, you can have a hot meal ready in just15 minutes. As a bonus, the fresh cilantro (also sometimes called coriander) is a natural anti-inflammatory and detoxifier. If you’re not fond of the flavor, you can substitute fresh parsley for a milder dish.
1 onion, diced
1 1/2 cups pineapple, diced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can of black beans
1 tbs chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp pepper
3/4 tsp salt
1. In a large Ziplock bag, add all ingredients except the black beans and corn tortillas. Massage everything around inside the bag until it is well-mixed.
2. Heat a small amount of oil in a very large sautee pan, and empty the contents of the bag into the pan, stirring frequently until onions are translucent.
3. Serve with black beans in 100% corn tortillas for a gluten-free fiesta, or make the meal SCD/GAPS-legal by omitting the canned beans, and serving in Julian’s Paleo Wraps (made of 100% coconut.)
