Health Highlights


1/2 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper
1 medium Carrots
1 small Yellow onion
1 medium stalk(s) Celery
1 clove(s) Garlic
1 cup Kale
2 can (15oz) Black beans, canned (drained, rinsed)
1 1/2 cup Rolled oats, dry
2 medium Egg (beaten)
1 tsp, ground Basil, dried
1 tsp Oregano, dried
1 dash Cayenne pepper (for glaze)
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 cup Cherry Tomatoes (chopped, for glaze)
1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar (for glaze)
1 tbsp Maple syrup (for glaze)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (for sauteing - or coconut oil)


1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Using a food processor chop all veggies; peppers, carrot, celery, onion, garlic and kale until finely minced.

3. In a large sauté pan, add oil and cook the veggies for about 5 or 6 minutes, or until soft. Set aside.

4. Process drained and rinsed black beans in the a food processor until the beans are broken down but not mushy. I like to keep back about 1/2 cup of the beans to add after to give the loaf extra texture.

5. In a large bowl combine the black beans, oats, egg and all the seasoning. Add in the sautéed veggies and mix well using hands.

6. Put mixture into a well oiled or parchment lined loaf pan.

7. Place the cut cherry tomatoes, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and mix.

8. Spoon on top of the prepared loaf.

9. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Let rest before cutting.

Serve and enjoy!
