Tired of the same old same old salad? We are too! This week, we’re featuring our new favorite fiber-filled, crunchy topping, and dare we say….crouton substitute! Loaded with fiber and B vitamins (thanks to the nutritional yeast) these beans pack a serious nutrient punch. Bake ahead, and have throughout the week. And you don’t have to stop at salad toppings. We think these contribute delicious texture on top of a spicy chili, cauliflower rice, or the chicken chili verde recipe. Happy baking team!

PS: Thank you to the crafty patient who inspired this recipe!
