Black Bean Mexican Bowl


This black bean Mexican bowl is inspired by Misters Real Food, my favourite cafe in Auckland! They have the most amazing food that I seriously can no get enough off. Their food is all seasonal, fresh, gluten and dairy free, plus everything I have eaten there just tastes incredible. If you go there make sure you try some of their raw vegan treats and desserts...ahmazing!
