Meatless Mondays: Cranberry Beans and Kale

This is a great recipe for breaking out the pressure cooker. If you don’t have one, this dish just takes a little more forethought. If cranberry beans are hard to come by, try pinto or red beans. This simple dish is easy to throw together and full of wonderful flavors. We love the use of kale in this dish because it’s so incredibly nutritious and the cooking time gives it just the right texture while still remaining a bit toothsome. The combination of cranberry beans and whole grain cornmeal make for a balanced plant-based protein dish, perfect for Meatless Monday. Serve with whole grain bread for a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs meal.

I am a diabetic looking for better carbs and nutrition. the basic “normal” starches, potato, rice, corn, and wheat, are much higher in simple starches than my body can handle. I am looking for carb sources higher in nutrition and complexity to replace them. How would oat flour or millet or quinoa fare in this recipe?

Jack,

The recipe would be different, but I think quinoa or millet would be a great substitute for the cornmeal.
