Black bean pumpkin, you say? I know there will be nay-sayers and that's fine. For those of you who have a bit of adventure, I'm sure you'll enjoy it! On that note, I have a really tough time choosing favorites, but I'm almost 99% positive that black beans are my favorite bean. They are immensely versatile as a vegetarian protein option and a great fiber option for meat-eaters. This black bean pumpkin recipe is a super easy meatless side dish to put together in a pinch using stuff you already have at home!
