I made Cuban chicken/black bean/rice bowls last night. Marinated chicken in a Cuban marinade (there are lots of recipes), cooked it in my cast iron pan and cut it up, made black beans, brown rice and mojo sauce (again, lots of recipes) and also served with lettuce, red bell pepper and mango. Delish!

I also echo the suggestion of various legumes. Also, veggie sushi with tofu, chickpea pasta (pasta made from chickpeas: Chickapea is one brand), brown rice and beans, veggies and hummus; quinoa with black beans, bell peppers, and mango.

Becca - bean and corn salad is a huge hit in our house, too.

This thread is inspiring me to up the bag lunches I make. Great ideas!

Another salad idea, if he likes it:  black bean and corn salad.  Thereís lots of variations, if you google.  I donít really use a recipe, so not helpful there, but itís black beans, frozen sweet corn, diced red peppers, green onion, chopped tomatoes, with a lime/olive oil/garlic dressing.  You can adapt to his tastes.  My kids wonít eat pasta or bean salads.  😕

Here's the recipe. I leave the onions out because I don't like them. I don't use 5 Tbs lemon juice--maybe just 2 or 3? I don't really measure. And I add some red wine vinegar. I also don't use thyme. Just didn't think I'd like it in this recipe. So really, you can do whatever you want with it.

https://www.skinnytaste.com/lentil-salad/

Ingredients:

    1 cup dry brown lentils
    1 bay leaf
    2 sprigs fresh thyme
    1 cup finely diced carrots
    1/3 cup finely diced celery
    1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
    1/4 cup finely diced red onion
    1/4 cup minced parsley
    1 clove garlic, minced
    5 tbsp lemon juice
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    fresh ground black pepper

Directions:

    In a medium saucepan combine lentils, bay leaf, and thyme.
    Add enough water to cover by 1 inch.
    Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered until lentils are tender but not mushy, about 16 to 20 minutes.
    Drain lentils and discard bay leaf.
    Place in a large work bowl with carrots, celery, red pepper, red onion, parsley, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
    Toss to combine and serve chilled or room temperature.

Makes 4 1/2 cups.

Will he eat lentils? I have cold lentil salad recipe I love. I love that it's crunchy and tangy like cole slaw, but I don't like cold slaw. It's lentils with chopped carrots, celery and red peppers and a dressing of lemon juice, olive oil and red wine vinegar.
