Slow Cooker Black Bean Fajitas


Saturday night, I decided we needed more black beans in our life.  So, I got to soaking.  Now, we have been cooking from cookbooks lately, but this one was half cookbook recipe, half winging it.



We cooked the beans down all day in the slow cooker, and the whole house smelled like garlic.  To go with it, we made Mexican Millet from The Veganomicon.  Oh Isa, is there anything you can't do?  The millet was so delicious, and it made a great base for the fajitas.

Josh had his on flour tortillas, and I had mine on lettuce topped with cashew sour cream.  It was a great and simple dinner that we've had again this week.  




It's been lovely to have food prepped in the house, because I have been trying to study every night after work.  As my test approaches, the stress mounts.  Hopefully, I will get through it and move forward, and I won't have a reason to fight emotional setbacks.
