Vegan roasted corn and beans pico de gallo is a more nutritious spin on the traditional pico de gallo or salsa fresca which is otherwise made with fresh tomatoes. You can call it a fancy salsa packed with nothing but extra goodness.
This version has an addition of roasted fresh corn , peppers, onions and some black beans . Plus a generous squeeze of lemon juice makes it absolutely irresistible .
Vegan roasted corn and beans pico de gallo is one easy and healthy snack option to munch on anytime of the day.
I love to whip it up on playdates or summer picnics too .
So when I made this healthy bowl for my son’s play date , I thought why not share it with you. Not very fancy pictures , clicked by my phone 🙂
Seeing the bowl polished off between all the play and giggles makes me happy and proud . The kids don’t even realise that they just had a big serving of veggies and protein . And that makes you a super mom right!
One cup of cooked black beans provides 15 grams of protein and fibre each. Plus it has zero fat and packed with magnesium , folate and B1.
And why kids, this snack is for everyone.
Is it only me or even you get those evening hunger pangs. Oh I get super hungry by 4 pm and need to munch on something.
I always stock up cans of beans for quick snack like this which is healthy and filling. Plus super quick and a no brainer. And this snack is pretty low in calories too.
I love to eat it with chips of course and sometimes more healthier side like baked pita chips, whole grain toasted breads , crackers or khakras. So sorted until dinner.
