Beans on the Brain

Love beans? You know we do, so I was particularly excited to see that one of food52‘s challenges this week is Your Best Recipe for Beans. I submitted my recipes for a few of our favorites:


Lentils and Chard

Spicy Black Bean and Quinoa Salad

Basic Fresh Beans

White Bean + Sundried Tomato Dip

Fresh Cranberry Bean Soup with Basil-Walnut Pesto

To your health!

  1. I look forward to checking out all these recipes, since your borracho recipe looked so yummy (i’m sure it will still be good minus the bacon…a friend gave me a smoked pheasant for the holidays and i think some of that meat will add the right smokieness to the dish)!

    To your good health, too!

  2. I’m a fan of your white beans with shrimp — I followed your guidelines and prepared that last year, and was blown away at what passes for a basic pantry meal in your house. Delicious!

    I love this post. You have so many great recipes here I’m not sure where to begin. Anyway, thanks for sharing. A happy, healthy, prosperous New Year to you both!

  4. Thanks to your post, we had beans for dinner last night, while watching The Good the Bad and the Ugly. Remarkably, Estorbo and The Ugly share a great deal of conversational traits…
