This high fiber, versatile relish can be eaten on its own, over a bed of greens, or as a nutritious filling in a breakfast burrito. Dry roasting the corn and onions brings out a deeper flavor profile.


  • 1 15.5oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • juice from 1 lemon


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F and dry roast corn and onion on sprayed sheet pan for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Toss gently to mix.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
  4. Tip: For a spicier version, add diced chilis.
