  • I can’t wait to try this when my tomatoes start piling up here!! :) I just made my black bean salad for dinner. (love that stuff….but I am sure in a month I’ll be looking for a change)

  • What brand of black beans do you use? I once tried Whole Foods 365 brand and had a gluten-reaction to them, probably because of cross contamination in the factory.
