My version of spicy is another person’s version of bland, but the great thing about this bean bake is that you can “heat” it up all you want. Just increase the spices or add more hot sauce.

Like the other savoury bean bakes, the texture of this bake is dry-ish and bread-like. Have a piece with a hearty vegetable soup, and you have a delicious, low-calorie lunch. Or you can serve it as a side at dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups white navy beans (19 oz. can), drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, cooked
  • 3 eggs (no substitutes)
  • ½ tsp. ground cardamom
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. hot sauce
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Cooking spray

Directions 

  1. Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Spray an 8″ or 9″ springform pan or a 9″x 9″ pan with cooking spray.
  3. Pour in batter; it will be thick but flow easily.
  4. Bake in 350° F oven for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Best served warm the next day.
