Bananas & Black Beans...Who Knew?!

I love bananas. I love black beans. But bananas & black beans an empanada?

I saw the recipe today in the March 2009 issue of Vegetarian Times and thought I would try it since I had all the ingredients on hand. So glad I did! Delish!! The banana flavor is so subtle yet compliments the savory onion & garlic flavor. And the beans offer just the right texture. Making the dough was a snap. Yep, this one is a keeper!

Here's a quick pic as I pulled them out of the oven and broke one open...mmmm!

For the recipe, head over to:
