Easy Beans: Simple, Satisfying Recipes That Are Good for You, Your Wallet, and the Planet

We rated this book:


Beans, beans, the magical fruit, the more you eat, the more you can’t believe all these delicious recipes are made with them! Jackie Freeman has pulled together a compact, masterful collection of forty recipes that go beyond simple directions – they’re vibrant ideas, methods of preparation that can be modified and delighted in for a lifetime. Freeman challenges the notion that beans are just for soup! Starting with indulgent breakfast dishes, she easily convinces us to prepare a big batch of Lentil and Oat Granola. What could be more obvious? We wonder why we never had lentils for breakfast before. She reveals that beans as a snack topic have been widely underrated – don’t look for seven-layer bean dip in here, nobody has time for yesterday’s news like that when they are scooping up rabid mouthfuls of Lentil and Mushroom Caviar, shoveling Marinated Black-Eyed Peas and Olives onto rustic slices of bread, and filling jars with Spicy Black Bean Snack Mix to take in the car. Hearty soups, herbaceous sides, and fulfilling main dishes complete the tableaux. Finally, a well-organized appendix gives straightforward directions on how to cook a variety of nutritious legumes. Come home to old traditions with a kettle of soaking beans, and serve up something new that satisfies the senses and the soul.
