Cheezy Black Beans on Texas Toast
This is a very easy and delicious open faced sandwich with a cowboy feel.
Texas Toast or thick sliced vegan bread
1 can or package of black beans
1/4 - 1/3 sliced brown onion
Oil of choice
Cheddar style cheese, non dairy or otherwise
Cayenne pepper or hot sauce
Ketchup (if desired)
Start with traditional Texas Toast, or if vegan or preferred, just use a really good thick sliced sourdough (I used Panera Bread country miche sliced thick) ...if preparing your own toast, just give it a light toasting before applying other ingredients
Slice brown onion and grill over medium heat in oil of choice (I used grapeseed) until just translucent. ..add a package or can of rinsed, drained black beans with just a spoonful or two of fresh water to prevent burning. ..stir onion and beans over medium-low heat until warm
Add salt to beans and onions if desired
Lay toast on broiling pan, perhaps with a drizzle of oil for flavor (especially if preparing a vegan version)
When thoroughly cooked, apply a few spoonfuls of bean mixture on to thick toast
Put non-dairy cheese (my favorite is Daiya cheddar style) or cheese of choice on top of beans n toast
Put under broiler until well melted or browned, but not burnt!
Arrange cheezy bean toasts on plate. Add remaining beans and onions on top, or on the side
Garnish with cayenne powder or hot sauce, and ketchup to taste
