This bean dip is packed with fiber, calcium, protein, iron and vitamins A and C. The flavor of the spinach is masked by the salsa and cumin, so it a great way to add nutrition to a delicious snack.

Miss deviled eggs? Try this completely vegan tofu-based recipe for a delicious treat.
1/3 cup water
4 large cloves garlic, minced…
1 cup dry brown lentils
1 cup diced carrots…
2 cups black-eyed peas, cooked
3 cups long-grain rice, cooked…

black beans (cooked according to directions)…
