Since moving, we are an even tighter budget than before. So being frugal is a must. A great way to do that is to use leftovers in a whole new fresh way.
I made a 15 bean soup last week and we had enough beans leftover for 3 servings, but honestly I just did not want another bowl of beans. Instead, I used the beans to make a whole new dish.
**the 15 bean soup had, 15 types of dry beans, water, garlic, dehydrated onion, bell pepper and carrots. Thyme, rosemary and a dash of cumin**
Frugal, inventive and delicious. PLUS meat free and healthy.
Plus this is a perfect meal for #MeatlessMonday, with lots of fiber, protein and flavor.Vegetarian Sweet Potato Wild Rice Chili
