Low Sodium Adobe Sweet Navy Beans Fry
We make dinner for my grandparents Monday through Friday - in effect, we are the meals on wheels in our family.
Both grandparents require low sodium accommodations. I used an adobe seasoning that had about 300mg of sodium for the 1/2 tsp. used in the dish.
This Navy Bean recipe comes from a "What the heck am I going to do with all these Navy Beans I cooked?" moment. If you have ever cooked a huge batch of dry beans thinking you were going to easily use them, you probably understand this.
This dish serves 5-6 as a main dish and up to 8-10 as a side dish. I recommend serving it with chicken on the side and a green salad.
Is It Any Good?
- 1 Red Pepper, Chopped or Miniced
- 3 Cups Navy Beans, Cooked (best from raw but canned should work)
- 1 Ear of Corn, Cut Off the Cobb
- 1 Celery Stick, Thin Cut
- 5 Mushrooms, Chopped
- 2 Green Onions, Chopped
- 1/2 tsp. Adobe Seasoning, Find a low sodium one
- 1tsp Mrs. Dash
Putting Everything Together!
- Spray a large skillet with non-stick spray.
- Add red peppers, corn, celery, and mushrooms and cook on medium high for about two minutes.
- Add beans and stir.
- Mix adobe and Mrs. Dash seasonings together in a bowl or in the palm of your hand and then sprinkle evenly throughout the skillet.
- Stir skillet and heat for about another five minutes, stirring often. If you use canned beans, you may need to stir more gently to prevent creating "mashed beans".
- Once cooked to your satisfaction, take skillet off heat, stir in green onions, cover, and let sit for a few minutes before serving.
