Beans? For breakfast? Yes! Beans are perfect to start your day off with a full stomach, stabilized sugars, and less likelihood to have cravings in between meals.
Sauté onion in 2 tablespoons of water.
When water evaporates and pan starts to brown, add a little more water.
When onions become translucent, add beans and cook for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, blend cashews, water, garlic, cornstarch, and salt until smooth and add to beans and onions. You may mix in diced pimentos if desired.
Heat for 10 minutes and serve over whole-wheat toast.
Tip: Even though there are a lot of carbohydrates in this meal, the fiber in the beans helps minimize blood sugar spikes.
