Peanut Butter Beans

So, I wilfully attribute this little discovery of mine to the fact that I absolutely love peanut butter. As a disclaimer, understand that this may be the only substantive reasoning as for why I thought this combo was so delicious.


All I did was mindlessly add too much salt and oregano to a can of beans I was warming on the stove. After tasting my poorly seasoned beans, I tried imagining what might cut the overpowering salty flavor. I opened the fridge. Oh, peanut butter. It seemed so natural. I added about a tablespoon and then immeiately regretted it. I probably just ruined all those beans, I thought. Darn.

I was already planning on throwing an egg onto my beans, so I just proceeded with my now haphazard plan.

I finished my egg juicy, laid it atop my peanut butter beans, bravely scooped up a spoonful full of juicy egg and steaming beans. I tasted it, bracing myself for a sickening combo of salt, oregano, and peanut butter. Nope, just delcious.

I had to have a dozen more bites before I was convinced. And then I went to get more peanut butter- success!

(Coincidentally, I was drinking a chai tea with it which complimented it better than it should have.)

    You are right. The combination is bizarre, but then this is what “fusion” is made of, so what do I know? And hey- talk about protein!
