In homemade how-to number 8, I showed you how to cook your own beans for a huge savings over the good canned beans. Today it’s time to put beans–black, white, or otherwise–into some spicy meatless make-ahead buffalo bowls!
What are we making with all those tender, perfect, homemade beans you just cooked from scratch? Garlic quinoa buffalo bean bowls! There are a few lingering meat recipes on NCK, like the buffalo chicken and garlic quinoa bowls, and it’s time to start converting them over to meatless versions. Today’s spicy buffalo bowl is a marriage of the recipe I just mentioned, and the sad, pictureless post about spicy black beans. The recipe for the beans is to die for, but it doesn’t get much love because I still haven’t taken any pictures of it. We’re making all that right today, with a bowl involving quick cook times that also does really well made ahead and is full of unique buffalo flavor that, personally, I crave even more in the summer.
