And by you, I also mean me. This was me for most of the time I was trying to photograph these Crunchy Roasted Black Beans:

What can I say? They’re pretty darn tasty. 🙂

If you’ve never roasted beans (black or otherwise) in the oven, you’re in for a big treat. They pop open, kind of like a popcorn kernel, and become a fun, crunchy snack. They’re perfect for when you want to munch on some chips but really want to keep it healthy.

You can add whatever seasoning you’d like, but for this recipe I’ve added hemp seeds, a nutritious seed that actually comes from the same plant as marijuana. No, they will not get you high and they are perfectly safe (and healthy!) to eat. They have an excellent (3:1) Omega 3-to-Omega 6 ratio and they’re high in valuable nutrients such as Vitamin E, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Zinc.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Drain and rinse the can of black beans. Pat the rinsed black beans dry with a towel.

  2. Add the olive oil, hemp seeds, and sea salt to the beans and toss to evenly coat.

  3. Place on a single layer on a cookie sheet, preferably one that has been covered with a silicone baking mat.

  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, give the beans a quick stir on the cookie sheet, and then bake for another 10 minutes.

  5. Let the beans cool for five minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan, Vegetarian

If you can manage to keep from eating all of them straight off the cookie sheet, serve them in a small bowl.

  • I LOVE black beans and these sound like a great thing to try. I know you say they won’t last long, but just in case, do you have an idea of how long to keep these? Thanks!
