My son used to love tomatoes, but had stopped eating them a few months ago. This recipe has tomatoes and once again he likes them. Just a quick tip: Keep introducing and re-introducing different vegetables to your kids and different ways to eat them! Salsa is very flavorful and a fun way to eat veggies. Below is our delicious new recipe!
Recipe by Lisa Cheplak
Romaine Lettuce (Romaine lettuce works best for the "boats")
Separate lettuce leaves, rinse and pat dry
Black Bean Salsa
15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained (you can also use garbanzo beans, pinto beans or any favorite bean)
1/4 red onion
1 garlic clove
1 handful of cilantro (or parsley)
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
(Can also use veggies such as red bell pepper and cucumber)
Add tomato, onion, garlic, cilantro, lemon and seasonings to a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. (If you don't have a food processor, finely chop by hand). Add to large bowl and mix in black beans.
Fill lettuce boats with salsa and serve! I could barely get photos because my son ate them so fast!
