These savory southwestern flavors paired with the meaty bite of the beans and umame of the avocado takes this one over the top!
Serves 2-3. That is unless you’re like me in which case it’ll serve 1 and you’ll need to make them their own. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made this one and love it every time! I know the ingredient list looks a little long but really isn’t so bad and comes together super fast and you can easily and rather inexpensively scoop up enough ingredients to make this recipe several times over.
1 Small Avocado, stone removed and chopped
1 Large Handful of Mixed Baby Greens
½ Small Lime, juice only
1 can Beans of choice (preferably Black, Red, or Pinto)
1 Green Onion, white & green, finely chopped
1 Garlic Clove, minced
12 Grape Tomatoes, halved
Small Handful of Raw Hulled Pumpkin Seeds
Small Handful of Raw Hulled Sunflower Seeds
½ tsp (rounded) Cumin (I really like cumin. You may scale this back if you’re less of a fan)
½ tsp Dried Oregano
¼ tsp Ground Coriander
Salt & Pepper, to taste.
Dash of Cayenne, as/if desired for an added kick
Place avocado, baby greens and lime juice in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Stir gently to combine and coat your avocados. Be careful not to mash your avocados while stirring.
Add remaining ingredients and toss until well combined.
