Make Meat Free Monday More Delicious Than Ever With Miami

Are you ready for a hearty, delicious, and filling suppertime treat that’s packed with health and nutrition? Eat with Kgantso and Miami Canners has the perfect pick-me-up for a meat-free Monday that will have you begging for seconds. And it’s simple to make, too! Try this kidney bean and veggie penne pasta on for size, we guarantee you’ll love it.

Nature’s Protein Punch

Kidney beans have a firm flesh that’s not unlike meat to the tooth, and it’s packed with healthy vegetarian protein, too. Bringing a subtle flavour of their own to the table that’s slightly smokey, they pair beautifully with many of the Miami tomato mixes. Kgantso used our succulent Sishebo mix to great effect, bringing a uniquely South African flavour to the dish, but you can pick whichever one strikes your fancy. In fact, swapping them out is a great way to change the dish up as you fancy.
