Okay so I am trying to think of new ways to get my face out there in the world…yikes ūüėČ

So I started to make videos, some will be product tests and some will be recipes.

This is just in the beginning stages, I only have a iPhone and my computer, but I am trying to make them better and better, sometimes I just laugh at myself when I watch them back :p LOL

But you have to start somewhere right, I will get better and its okay if you laugh I will not mind ūüėõ

So here is the first one I did so check out I hope you enjoy it!!

FYI – I have already changed few things from this first video like I said it is a work in progress ūüôā

1/4- 1/2 tsp. hot paprika

In a food processor add garlic and pulse a few times, then add beans and seasonings, pulse again and add oil and pulse until mixture is smooth.

Then serve with chips or veggies, you can also add spread on tortilla for a wrap.

Wild Harvest Three Bean Salad

cover

So this weekend in one of our stores we had the Wild Harvest Beans on sale and we were having a food demo on the beans.  So I thought I could come up with a simple and quick recipe for Three Bean Salad.

So we had Black Beans, Pinto Beans and¬†Garbanzo¬†Beans, now how about some crunch…celery, onion that sounds good, I do have some fresh rosemary so lets add that, and parsley is a nice¬†addition¬†too.

We will use some apple cider vinegar…I know, I know any of you that truly follow me know that I¬†absolutely¬†love Balsamic Vinegar (especially¬†the kind we sell in our Hyde Park store back in the Deli)…but I’m changing it up on you plus a lot people use it in lots of recipes so they may have that on hand. ¬†Okay a little sugar for sweetness, oil and good old salt and pepper.

I think everyone liked it, I didn’t stay while it was being sampled but I did get an email from one the manager’s saying how awesome it was…so let’s see if you all do too!! ūüôā

1 can Garbanzo Beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/2 tbsp. fresh rosemary, finely chopped (or dill would be nice)

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/3 cup granulated sugar

In a large bowl add beans, celery, onions, parsley and rosemary, mix and set aside.
Whisk together in a small bowl vinegar, sugar, oil, salt and pepper, then pour over beans and fully combine to coat.

Put in refrigerator for a few hours or over night, let set about 30 minutes to an hour at room temperature before serving. 

This would be fantastic for afternoon picnic or backyard BBQ this summer!!
