When I first saw mention of these bars, I thought “black beans and chocolate?! ugh.” I love both, but I wasn’t sure I’d like them together. I was pleasantly surprised. They have a nice chocolaty flavor that is slightly sweet thanks to the dates. The texture is somewhere between brownies and fudge. A great healthy snack.
My wife loves soup. It is one of her favorite foods. She whipped this soup up last night with ingredients we had in the fridge. Baby carrots, spinach, frozen tomatoes, mushrooms, Gardien home style beefless tips, oregano, Italian seasoning, and water. I’m not a fan of mushrooms, but this soup smelled and tasted great.
