I think Christine was the first to try this one. Adapted from this recipe, it's great on taco salad, tostadas, or anywhere you'd normally use taco meat.

2 cloves garlic
2 cans black beans (2 1/2 c.), drained and rinsed
1/4 c. rolled oats
1/4 c. cornmeal
1 T. chili powder
3/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper

  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Process all ingredients in food processor until they stick together and form a paste.
  • Spread/crumble mixture onto a sprayed cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and chop up with a spatula or spoon.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes more.
  • Chop/crumble again.
  • Bake for 3-5 minutes more.

I like it even more mixed with this ground walnut meat. Make the walnut meat and add it to the beans for the last 5 minutes of baking time.

Thanks for posting this, Bekah! I remember you speaking highly of it when you were here, and we never had a chance to make it. I will now!

Thank you for this. Commercial black bean crumbles aren't GF.
