Black bean brownies with flaxseed – high protein brownies

Black bean brownies with flaxseed – high protein brownies

I never imagined that I could get 13% of my iron intake and 18% of my required dietary fiber intake plus 4g of my recommended protein intake by eating a delicious chewy, chocolatey brownie.  But it is possible with these black bean brownies!

Here are some Tipps for this black bean brownies recipe:

I’ve tried making these brownies by soaking black beans overnight.  The brownies were good – but using canned black beans is better.  My soaked black beans also smelled like black beans when I tasted them (before baking) and I didn’t like that much.  Getting the smooth consistency was also easier with canned beans.

Don’t add too much liquid.  2 tablespoons of soy milk is enough.

Vanilla extract and cocoa powder are a must – just as much as the dark chocolate sprinkled on the brownie.

Allow the brownies to fully cool before eating.  I know you will be tempted, but the flavor changes completely – more chocolatey.

I baked these in a 23 cm X 23 cm cake pan.  I would have preferred a pan that is 15cm or max 20 cm, to give me slightly thicker brownies.   Using a 15 cm cake pan you get 9 thick, delicious brownies (2″ square brownies) at each 187 calories.

Adas Polo Recipe – Lentil Rice – Persian Dish

Adas Polo Recipe – Lentil Rice – Persian Dish

Adas Polo Rezept auf DeutschOne of the easiest dishes in Persian cuisine is Adas Polo.  The primary ingredients in this dish are rice and (green) lentils.  The dish can be prepared with significant variations, as in this example, served with raisins and almonds.  My mom likes to prepare this dish with small ground beef or lamb meat balls.

I also love this dish with fresh herbs and some plain yogurt on the side.

I recommend preparing this dish in a non-stock pot.  This also encourages the formation of “Tadig” which is rice that fries on the bottom of the pot.

Here are the ingredients:

  1. Cut onions into small cubes and pan fry with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil until golden.
  2. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil adding salt in a non-stick pot. Once boiling, add lentils and allow to cook for 5 - 6 minutes.
  3. Add tumeric to onions, then sliced almonds. Reduce the temperature and allow to sit for a minute or two.
  4. Add rice to lentils and remainder of water and vegetable oil. Set on medium heat (3/5). Leave on for 10 - 15 minutes until water has completely evaporated.
  5. Add raisins to almonds and remove pot from heat completely.
  6. Once water has evaporated from rice, add sliced almonds to pan. Reduce the temperature to 2/5. Wrap a kitchen towel around the lid of the pot, allowing it to absorb extra moisture from the rice. Leave pot on stove for 5 minutes.
  7. Ready to serve. This dish is frequently served with fresh herbs like parsley and radishes.
