See the wet can? You should always rinse/clean the tops of your cans before opening them. My aunt taught me that when I was a little girl helping out in the kitchen one day. I was so young when she taught me this lesson, as I proceeded to open the can straight from the pantry that day. Oops I was maybe 8?  I never forgot that lesson all these years. She showed me the dust on top and further explained how dirt, bugs, insects etc. can come in contact or sit on top of the can on the shelves at the store or in transit for example. No one wants that getting in your canned veggies if the lid drops in accidently. I thought about this today, in fact, I think of her every time I open a can. Every single time if you can believe it. She has passed away, I miss her dearly and think of her often.
This can today was dusty! Back of the pantry almost forgot it was back there dusty. :-/ The children are visiting family and with just hubby and I, I did not feel up to going to the store. I had Quinoa, Black Beans and Spinach working and just wanted something else to pair with it so I came up with this recipe. A great sauce that would go great with this is my Russian Sauce. Enjoy!
