A variety of vegetables, a rich tomato base, and just the right amount of spice make this vegetarian chili a satisfying option in only 35 minutes.
Mushroom and Black Bean Tortilla Casserole
Sauteed mushrooms, cooked black beans, and store-bought salsa are layered with corn tortillas in a baking dish to create this Tex-Mex-inspired casserole.
Black-Bean and Sweet-Potato Stew
This satisfying vegetarian stew is ready in about an hour—and more than half that time is hands-off. Opting for canned beans instead of dried put this recipe on the fast-track, and velvety, earthy sweet potatoes, nutty quinoa, and smoky chipotle peppers provided complexity and depth without the need for an all-day simmer.
Black Bean, Cucumber, and Feta Salad
Pressure-cooked black beans (time to break out that Instant Pot!) meet cool cucumbers and bright cilantro, lime, and feta in this refreshing side dish that's ideal year-round. This recipe appears in our cookbook "Martha Stewart's Pressure Cooker" (Clarkson Potter).
Think of this as an update on the taco bar: Lay out a platter of seasoned, lime-doused avocado halves and bowls of toppings, and let guests help themselves.
Tostadas are a quick and easy way to add a little excitement to the usual taco night, and this meat-free version is no exception. Because between the crispy tortillas, creamy black bean mash, and smoky chipotle (oh, and did we mention plenty of melty cheese?) there's plenty of delicious fun to be had with this 30-minute dinner.
Zucchini and black beans come together for a juicy and satisfying taco punctuated by fresh, creamy toppings.
Pineapple and Black Bean Salsa
This pineapple salsa makes a great appetizer at any party that could use a sweet-and-spicy kick.
Spicy Black Bean Soup
For a crunchy topping to this flavorful soup, cut corn tortillas into strips, toss with a little oil, then bake at 350 degrees until crisp.
Seared-Tuna Taco Bowl
Composed of rice, black beans, cabbage slaw, and fresh tuna spiced with chili powder, this power bowl makes a light yet satisfying dinner or lunch. A zesty cilantro cream dressing brings it all together.
