Southwest Veggie Mix
This is a quick, delicious and nutritious veggie mix that you can prepare ahead of time and pull out of the fridge to add to dishes throughout the week! We love adding it to omelettes, quesadillas and even just eating it on its own. This recipe uses one of our favourite pantry staples BLACK BEANS, which are a great source of plant protein, fiber and magnesium!
