This is a really versatile recipe that you can adjust to fit whatever beans, grains and veggies you've got on hand. 


For Jalapeno Lime Avocado Crema
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 avocado
  • 2-6 slices of Jalapeño
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • dash of salt


  1. Saute the onions and green peppers in a pre-heated skillet with a generous drizzle of olive oil.  Add a little salt so that the onions start to give off their moisture.  
  2. While they are cooking add all of the ingredients for the Crema into a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. If it's a little too thick add warm water until it reaches your desired consistency. 
  3. Once the onions and peppers are translucent add the tomatoes. Saute for another 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Add the cumin, chili powders and chica adobo and saute until fragrant. 
  5. Add the black beans, wheat berries and the juice of half of a lime. Reserve the other half of the lime to serve with the bowls.
  6. Add a handful of the cilantro and stir in until slightly wilted. 
  7. Divide the grain mixture between 4 bowls. Top with radish, green onion, cilantro and sliced avocado. Add a generous spoonful of crema to each bowl and serve.

In the Basque region of France they don't soak their signature Tolosa beans, they slowly braise them with just water, salt and olive oil. Time and heat to transform even the dense beans from dry to creamy masterpieces. This method works just as well for all heirloom beans! Read more about my bean braising experiments...
