Easy Avocado-Lime Black Bean Salad

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on November 2, 2010

I don’t know about you, but I have been in a major lunch rut lately. When things get busy, I have a habit of falling into the ‘same lunch everyday’ trap and I eat the same thing until I am blue in the face and can’t take it any longer.

My rut as of late has consisted mainly of hummus and veggie wraps. For almost everyday for the past two months, I have had a wrap as part of my lunch because they are quick, mindless, and easy. They take 5 minutes to whip up and can be consumed in even less time!

But, it is time to change it up and spice up my lunches once again. A girl can only stay in a lunch rut for so long before she snaps. ;)

I seriously cannot fathom eating another wrap for a very long, long time.

Please tell me I am not the only one who wears out foods like this. :)

Today I have a delicious, healthy, and super quick black bean salad recipe that makes a wonderful lunch, either as the main course or as a side dish. If you are looking for a way to change up the everyday fare, this is it!

Easy Avocado-Lime Black Bean Salad

I fell in love with this black bean salad as soon as I tasted it. It is like no other black bean salad I have ever made before. The hint of lime and spicy kick from the cumin makes for an addicting and healthy salad full of protein, healthy fats, and flavour.

Adapted from The Kitchn.

Ingredients:

  • Two 15-ounce can black beans
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 small shallots, diced
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp Kosher Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 large avocado, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces

 

Directions: Drain the beans thoroughly and rinse. In a large bowl add the beans and toss with lime juice, cilantro leaves, diced shallot, and ground cumin. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Peel and slice an avocado, and serve the beans at room temperature, with chopped avocado on top or mixed throughout the salad. Note that I did not have any cilantro on hand, but it still tasted delicious! Makes 3-4 servings.

Notes from original recipe: The beans will last for several days in the fridge. You can easily take this salad for lunch and bring along an avocado to chop up just before serving.

The beauty of this lunch is that it is not only healthy, packed with protein and healthy fats, but it is whipped up in a jiffy, leaving you lots of time for life’s other daily tasks.

Lunch rut, be gone.

I think I threw together this lunch in 5 minutes flat. It also makes enough for a few servings so the leftovers can be enjoyed throughout the week.

I wasn’t sure how I would like the cumin + lime flavours together, but it was actually wonderful. I could not get enough of this dish!

20101102-IMG_9409

I had the salad with a couple slices of Ezekiel bread and some fruit for dessert. It was so filing, well-rounded, and super energizing. If you are looking to break out of a rut, I highly recommend this delicious lunch. It is going to be on my regular rotation for easy & quick lunches. :)

Are you currently in a lunch rut? Do you enjoy mixing it up for lunch or do you rely on the same foods most of the time?

I have been in a lunch rut too! Actually more of a dinner rut. I usually ask friends on Twitter and Facebook for suggestions, or make a list of what is sitting in my pantry and fridge. WE are actually have tostadas tonight with black beans and avocado!

I stay out of a lunch rut by making extra large dinner dishes and then freezing the leftovers in individual portions. I have so many different dishes in my freezer that I can pull out and heat up at work. It’s a total time saver too!

Erika @ Health and Happiness in LA November 2, 2010 at 12:34 pm

I am pretty boring with lunches – roasted veggies, salad, Instant Colcannon, or soup most of the time. And leftovers. I think it’s easy to get in a lunch rut because you’re usually only making it for yourself and I make all my meals just for one so it’s even easier to get in a food rut overall.

Katy @ A Healthy Shot November 2, 2010 at 12:34 pm

I am TOTALLY in an all around food rut :( Last night I sat down with my dinner and couldn’t even finish it because it was so lame! I think my brain is so overloaded with school work that when it comes to making my meal, I have no creativity left. The beans look tasty though! Very fresh. I have all of the ingredients so I think this might be my dinner tonight :)

One word – yum!!! Thanks for the idea. I am frequently in a lunch rut – I mean, I eat healthily, but sometimes there’s only so much roasted red pepper and tomato soup a girl can take :)
Your butternut squash casserole was on the menu for dinner this week, but I can’t find any b-squash . . seriously! They’re all out @ the two supermarkets nearby. Definitely next week!

Yes I am in a lunch rut — I usually have leftovers from the night before. Sometimes that is good, but sometimes it is super boring :(

And I know you are sick of wraps, but I think this salad would taste good in a wrap :)

Lunch is the hardest thing for me. I have to have something quick and easy so I usually end up doing the same thing. I’ll have the same quick, easy meal for weeks on end so I don’t have to think. And then get in a rut and switch to something else…which I repeat until I’m sick of it.

Alina @ Duty Free Foodie November 2, 2010 at 12:43 pm

I can totally relate – I make almost the same lunch salad so often, that I am actually starting to get sick of feta! When you love something, it’s easy to eat it so often you get sick of it!

YES, I am in a major lunch rut. I have eaten a PB & banana sandwich for lunch at work nearly every day for about 3 months. I can’t stop making it because it is fast and easy and it definitely tastes good…but it’s getting to the point where I am just not excited to eat midday anymore. I’m feeling a little under the weather today so I brought some leftover veggie & barley soup I made in the crockpot this weekend. I am so excited for something different that I’m literally counting down the minutes till lunch time!

The lunch that I just ate would definitely indicate that I’m in a lunch rut. I always try to make a large dish for dinner and then eat left overs for lunch to save time and money. Sometimes it works and sometimes it just leaves me feeling bored. Booo.

Your salad looks great! I’ve been on an avocado kick lately, so I will def have to try it!

I easily fall into the sandwich rut. Since I normally eat lunch at work sandwiches are just a quick easy thing to bring with me and don’t need to be refrigerated or anything. I try to switch up the fillings but it doesn’t always work.

I never use the word rut, I use the word groove :)

I have found mine. Some may say it’s a rut, but I actually eat the same things every day. I am a high raw GF vegan so basically that means lots of raw veggies and fruits daily. Yes they are different, and yes, I try to prepare them differently but it all comes back to….there’s only so many ways one can get “creative” with broccoli before it’s just….broccoli :)

So that’s why I say Ive found my groove. And am sticking with it..haha!

As for your lunch and your food in general…omg I would say that you never eat the same thing twice, you clearly are never in a rut (even if you think you are, the photos don’t lie :)) and this latest creation is just brilliant.

Major hugs and have a great day honey :)

Looks tasty! I try to make about 2 new portable lunch salads at the beginning of each week so that I can alternate them and don’t have to spend lots of time at the end of each day making something new. I really do miss having my sandwich press though – I’d love to go home for lunch and use it once in a while but just don’t have the time. Maybe I should bring it to work? ;)

I’ve been in a “general” rut with my meals lately! I don’t know if it’s laziness, or if I just REALLY like what I’ve been eating… but I think it’s time to change it up, too! Your salad looks delicious! I have some avocados I need to use up, so I’m going to try it!

See, I have the problem of falling into a breakfast rut…without me even realizing it I will eat the same thing for breakfast months on end and when I finally change I can’t even look at what I was having let alone eat it for a long time… The convenience is always what gets you ;)

I have this habbits of repeating breakfast, lunchs, snacks and dinners too… :S and trying to do something about it cause I feel like im going to miss on other nutriments and vitamins at one point! lol Always eat cereals for breakfast, egg sandwich for lunch, larabar, crackers, carrots & hummus for snacks… for some reason, I never get tired of it… so im trying to be more imaginative on my dinners! I’ve discovered Soba noodles recently and those are aswesome : 3 of my last week dinners included those! lol I am living alone and it’s difficult to plan a different meal everyday, if there is leftovers well, nobody else than me will eat it!

I actually like to get in a rut sometimes so I don’t have to think so much about what I’m eating.

I actually had hummus and veggies for lunch today! Yum. But, your black bean salad sounds awesome! I love cumin, lime, and black beans together. I change up what else I throw in there, but those are awesome! Or sometimes I swap lemon for the lime.

AGS November 2, 2010 at 2:35 pm

I eat a lot of the same things for lunch, but I love what I eat, so it never feels like a rut. Hot soup, bread with hummus, large salads. . . all can be adapted endlessly. And my husband and I eat pretty much the same thing several times for dinner each night: hot brown rice, quinoa, millet, with whatever toppings we have on hand. I guess, despite my love of eating out/trying new foods, I am rather simple at heart.

I get in foods ruts often. It’s so easy to eat the same thing over and over! I’m most guitly of this for breakfast. I’ll eat oatmeal for months on end, and then one day, I can’t stomach the thought of another bowl. Then it’s on to months of yogurt and fruit, or your (AMAZING) baked breakfast puddings, or cereal and milk. Eventually, I find my back to the oatmeal and I can’t remember why I stopped eating in the first place!

I usually opt for wrap/sandwich options as well (damn time constraints!)

I promised myself to bring in some diversity and make lunches that include different grains and beans (like a seaweed balls filled with brown rice-quinua-beans mixture). And try to eat different types of food for breakfast too (otherwise I tend to fall into an oat-wheat vicious cycle).
Thank you for your blog, Angela! You’re a ray of light in my very stressful time right now. Your photography is beautiful.

I never thought I would say this, but I think I wore out Indian cuisine this week. It wasn’t the fact that I was making Indian food every night. It was that meal I made Friday night. Something about it wasn’t quite right. Nothing turned out well. And now the thought of Indian food is freaking me out (kind of like after you get food poisoning you can never eat that food again!). But a wrap sounds really good : )

Funny thing about being in a rut with meals, it happens so easily. Though I have found myself making/eating the same things each week because everyone likes it, I have been adding a new recipe each week. Every Wed. our family tries something new. It has now become a day my family gets excited about. And I have to thank you for many of these recipes we continue to enjoy!

I added corn, which was delicious. I would also love to add the cashew sour cream. Thing is, it took me a long time. Your recipes have literally changed my life. I LOVE them. Can’t wait for Sept. 6. One thing I am tiring of, however, is chopping cilantro. Is there a way I can do it faster?

Thanks.
