Easy Roasted Red Kidney Beans With a Kick (Vegan)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

Need to get both simple carbs and a good protein quotient in after a workout? I've been on a roasting frenzy lately with various legumes to have a quick, hot, nutritious dish that doesn't yield much (since I'm cooking for just me.) I use All-Purpose Mexican Seasoning but storebought works too. This is great to have with a salad, piece of bread or fruit but would also make a nice side dish for a sit-down dinner. Simple and cheap too!


  1. Rinse and drain the kidney beans and put them into a tossing bowl.
  2. Pour in the olive oil, seasoning, and nutritional yeast and shake until fully coated.
  3. Put the beans into a baking dish and cover it with foil, loosely venting on the side. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

I loved this! The nutritional yeast gives it a parmesan cheese-like quality, but even better cuz it's good for you! The first time I made it, hubs said it was too spicy. Next time I added diced sweet potatoes (microwaved first to partially cook them), onions, and peppers. I also used less Mexican seasoning and instead tried some Tajin, which is a chili and lime seasoning. Delicious!

Absolutely delicious! I plan on making this again and again. I paired it with some roasted tomatoes, and it was a very satisfying and healthy dinner.
