Start your day right with this hearty quesadilla, perfect for a weekend breakfast. Chili powder is a mixture of chilies, cloves, coriander, cumin and oregano, and is not particularly spicy.
6 Bean Breakfast Quesadilla
Black Bean, Tomato and Lime Soup
Beans and lime juice give this soup a south of the border feel. You can use fresh or canned plum tomatoes. Serve with cornbread, whole grain tortillas or other whole grain bread.
This hearty, family-pleasing meal is a Tex-Mex lover’s delight. Use 1-3/4 cups (425 mL) of whatever PC salsa you have on hand; you could also add 1 can of drained corn in with the beans.
Butternut Squash & Black Bean Chowder
Fall flavours of squash, sage and corn make this a wonderful cold weather meal. Pancetta gives this hearty vegetable chowder a lift.
Deep-fried chickpea croquettes called falafel are a Middle Eastern specialty and are also a popular street food in Canada’s urban areas. Here we form falafel mixture into patties instead of croquettes and reduce the fat by frying in a nonstick pan.
Chick Pea Korma
Korma is a creamy, nut-based mild curry sauce. You could spend hours making it from scratch, or just open a bottle of PC’s korma sauce! Squash and chick peas make a hearty dish, perfect for vegetarians.
Chunky Hummus Vegetable Wrap
Serve leftover hummus another day with PC Blue Menu tortilla chips or vegetables for dipping.

Corn and Black Bean Salsa
Use fresh or canned tomatoes for this deliciously addictive bean salsa. Serve with your favourite PC Blue Menu Lentil Chip or PC Blue Menu Flaxseed Tortilla Chips.
Cranberry Flaxseed Muffins
If you have a coffee grinder, grind the flaxseeds in it in batches. You may want to keep a coffee grinder just for grinding seeds and nuts.
Crispy Tofu with Peanut Sauce
Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, this tofu dish offers a balance of textures and flavours. Serve with rice to soak up the Memories sauce, and steamed broccoli.
