Egg baked avocado, egg whites, skillet grilled red potatoes. Boom.
This delicious meal that features a tasty black bean recipe can be made even easier with the use of an instant pot or slow cooker. You will cut your prep time down if you make the beans beforehand, and they can easily be portioned out and frozen for weekly (or monthly) lunch and dinner plans. With brussel sprouts and tender scallops, this recipe is perfect for those after gym meals where you need to replenish your energy and protein without sacrificing your health goals.
Tasty black bean recipes can sometimes be hard to find but look no further. The secret is using pico de gallo, some cumin, and garlic to season it into a delightful mix. You can use dried black beans if you want to make black beans from scratch, but canned beans work too. However, dried beans may be cheaper in the long run if this is something you foresee making large amounts of at a time.
For sea scallops, make sure they are dry, firm, and smell like the sea. If they are shiny or wet, they are often old, and if they have a fishy smell, are way past their prime and you should skip. Make sure you don’t overcook the scallops when a quick sear will do. Scallops will shrink and be tough if you cook them for too long.
Depending on how you like them, you can steam or roast the brussel sprouts until they are tender and nutty. As a leafy green, brussel sprouts (which look like tiny cabbages) are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. With these and beans at your side, it is very easy to switch up the scallops with another protein source such as beef, chicken, or fish.

While we’re familiar with Mediterranean chickpea salad recipes, full of lemon juice, fresh herbs, olive, oil, and red onion, there’s another contender in the bean salads world that I am personally in love with. I would like to introduce you to my sweet and spicy steak and chickpea salad recipe. Chickpea salads are always on my list of favorite salad recipes to showcase since they are full of fiber and protein and so versatile that it can easily be dressed up in so many different ways. This salad is so good that you won’t even need any salad dressing. Just a sprinkling of kosher salt, if any, and it’s ready to go.
This sweet and spicy simple chickpea salad recipe features ginger and red pepper and orange cranberries for some sweet heat. Tender and juicy steak make this a protein-packed power lunch, and the spinach gives a healthy serving of dark leafy greens. You can use canned chickpeas, also sometimes known as garbanzo beans, or you can use dry chickpeas. However, if you use the dry version, you’ll have to cook it beforehand but a slow cooker or instant pot can cut your cooking time down. The only downside is that this easy weeknight dish doesn’t keep very well, so you should eat it soon after making it. Some might add some feta cheese to it for another boost of protein.
