Black Bean Pita Sandwich

Black Bean Pita Sandwich

This is a quick & easy lunch idea using healthy ingredients, including black beans, a great source of protein.

Here are the ingredients:
1 can (540ml) of cooked black beans - 2 cups (340g) drained black beans(unsalted preferably)
3 to 4 tablespoons cooking oil (I have used olive oil)
2 cup Onion (275g) finely chopped (1 large onion 350g by weight with skin on)
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic (4 - 5 garlic cloves)
1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger (1/2 inch ginger)

Salt to taste ( I have added 1/2 + 1/4 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt because I am using unsalted beans, if you are using the salted kind adjust the quantity accordingly)

1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (OPTIONAL)
1/4 cup Water (add a bit more water if you think the beans are too dry, use your judgement)
Lemon juice to taste ( I have added 1+1/2 tablespoon on lemon juice, personally I like it slightly sour but you do you)

Whole wheat pita (medium size)
