Cookbook giveaway - Nourish

Nourish cookbookThe authors of the new cookbook Nourish: Whole Food Recipes featuring Seeds, Nuts & Beans created the book after discovering a mutual love for beans. The duo, Nettie Cronish and Cara Rosenbloom, felt that  nutritious and inexpensive legumes, along with seeds and nuts, are often underutilized in everyday cooking. Since those ingredients offer a positive nutritional impact that belies their size and can be easily incorporated into familiar foods like granola and chili, your morning oatmeal, and the crust on tuna or lamb chops, Nettie and Cara decided to write a cookbook dedicated to legumes, nuts and seeds. (You can read more about the book in our author interview.)

We're delighted to offer 2 copies of Nourish to EYB Members in the U.S. and Canada only. One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post:

Which legume do you most enjoy to make and eat?

    Really -- a toss-up: chick peas or cannelini beans. Where live, it's hard to get some of the other interesting beans I keep reading about.

  • Barb_N  on  3/12/2016 at 1:15 PM

    Hah, I am about to amke Asian noodle vegetable soup tonight- if only I had this cookbook to guide me...

  • decorates  on  3/12/2016 at 5:43 PM

    I love cooking with corn - the sweetness and texture is wonderful.

  • ladibyrd  on  3/12/2016 at 6:30 PM

    Cowpeas / black eyed peas (particularly from our garden), and I keep meaning to do something with all these chickpeas!

  • jupflute  on  3/13/2016 at 9:37 AM

    probably chickpeas

  • allthatsleftarethecrumbs  on  3/13/2016 at 1:17 PM

    We really don't get a great variety here so mostly it is chickpeas, but I'd love to branch out more and maybe order some online.

  • ballen  on  3/13/2016 at 3:32 PM

    Garbanzo beans because of versatility but black eyed peas a very close second!

  • eliza  on  3/13/2016 at 6:52 PM

    Lentils are my favourite legume.

  • hillsboroks  on  3/13/2016 at 8:50 PM

    Chickpeas, split peas and navy beans top my list.

  • jecca  on  3/13/2016 at 9:17 PM

    I love French lentils and fava beans.

  • vickster  on  3/14/2016 at 9:15 AM

    I love all beans but probably garbanzos are my favorite.

  • Zosia  on  3/14/2016 at 10:26 AM

    Black eyed peas with lentils a close second.

  • vinochic  on  3/14/2016 at 3:31 PM

    fava beans and puy lentils.

  • djoh437938  on  3/15/2016 at 10:11 AM

    I like them all but for a staple I would pick pinto beans

  • kimtrev  on  3/15/2016 at 1:45 PM

    I love chickpeas!

  • Maura  on  3/15/2016 at 5:02 PM

    Chickpeas, Lentils, yum1

  • trudys_person  on  3/15/2016 at 8:17 PM

    Lentils, with chick peas a close second. Both are very versatile!

  • pandapotamus  on  3/16/2016 at 12:00 AM


  • Mariarosa  on  3/16/2016 at 8:27 AM

    I really love borlotti beans....

  • emjamison  on  3/16/2016 at 7:08 PM

    I enjoy cooking with black beans most, then garbanzo beans. I love the versatility of both, whether simply adding them to a recipe, or creating something new, such as a black bean cracker paired with a white bean or classic chickpea hummus. However, if I am going to sit down to eat a bowl of legumes by themselves it would be a bowl of lima beans, hands down.

  • ravensfan  on  3/18/2016 at 7:24 PM

    I like cooking with chick peas.

  • JanScholl  on  3/23/2016 at 4:28 PM

    I love black beans , maybe way too much! But lately I have been looking to green peas. I think just a bowl of peas with a pinch of mint and maybe a little spice and I am happy.

  • sgump  on  3/23/2016 at 10:54 PM

    Chickpeas! (I recall a particularly energetic and always upbeat classmate of mine from college, ca. 1990s: When I asked her for her secret one day, she gaily replied, "Chickpeas!" before bouncing off, likely to the nearest salad bar.)

  • sarahawker  on  3/24/2016 at 1:47 PM

    Black Beans, I can them every few months and we eat them in everything!

  • brenboites  on  3/24/2016 at 7:19 PM

    Add me to the fans of chickpeas. Good in salads, hummus, soup and falafels.

  • tcjanes  on  3/24/2016 at 7:30 PM

    Le Puy green lentils.

  • imaluckyducky  on  3/24/2016 at 8:56 PM

    Black beans. O.M.G I cook and eat two pounds a month, easily.

  • elysek  on  3/24/2016 at 9:50 PM

    I love black beans.

  • t.t  on  3/24/2016 at 10:08 PM


  • robinj  on  3/24/2016 at 10:14 PM

    Hard to choose between chickpeas and black beans

  • Julia  on  3/24/2016 at 10:30 PM

    French lentils and a variety of beans.

  • cocecitycook  on  3/25/2016 at 1:54 AM

    Garbanzos, lentils, black beans. Don't think I could choose just 1 favorite!

  • mfl  on  3/25/2016 at 7:26 AM


  • SujataNaik  on  3/25/2016 at 8:05 AM

    Kidney beans!

  • fiarose  on  3/25/2016 at 8:45 AM

    the hardest choice honestly lentils or black beans, and nothing makes me feel better than dal.

  • Waderu  on  3/25/2016 at 9:44 AM

    black beans cooked in the slow cooker

  • Cie  on  3/25/2016 at 11:09 AM

    I always go back to cannellinis -- my fave!

  • Sfgordon  on  3/25/2016 at 11:56 AM

    I have several types of beans stocked in my pantry, but I always seem to run out of chickpeas first. They can be a main, a side, an addition to a salad, etc., and now I even save the canning liquid, "aquafaba" for vegan meringue.

  • mpennington  on  3/25/2016 at 4:01 PM

    Pinto beans are my favorite legime

  • lindaeatsherbooks  on  3/25/2016 at 5:36 PM

    I love cooking with chick peas. I put them in most of my dishes.

  • JDA  on  3/26/2016 at 5:33 AM

    I love cannellini beans; especially for making dips!

  • infotrop  on  3/26/2016 at 12:21 PM

    Now that I have a pressure cooker, I'm learning to love beans, especially cannellini

  • ltsuk  on  3/26/2016 at 9:55 PM


  • Taxlady  on  3/26/2016 at 10:17 PM

    I just love lentils.

  • Siegal  on  3/27/2016 at 2:57 PM

    Fava beans are my fav legume

  • lauriesk  on  3/27/2016 at 4:13 PM

    Peanuts are my favorite legume.

  • deucemom  on  3/27/2016 at 8:02 PM

    Cannellini beans.

  • RuthGo  on  3/27/2016 at 9:17 PM

    I love all beans but I enjoy the classic garbanzo.

  • Nancith  on  3/27/2016 at 9:34 PM

    I like lentil, very versatile & gentle on the digestive system!

  • Kimberly62  on  3/29/2016 at 11:58 AM

    I use in my daily salads kidney, garbonzo, black beans along with hemp and sesame seeds and chia.

  • zubs1990  on  3/29/2016 at 3:49 PM

    I really enjoy black beans. I also love red lentils;lentil soup is the best!

  • tjnelson1hotmail  on  4/1/2016 at 9:02 PM

    Chick peas or beans...either great northern, navy or black beans.

  • AhoritaComida  on  4/2/2016 at 3:23 AM

    That would have to be the Phaseolus vulgaris! Diana Kennedy has a FABULOUS recipe in one of her Mexican cookbooks for Black Beans with Pork and Rice. This is where I learned to fry the raw rice in garlic oil till golden, and then to cook it in black-bean broth. The beans and pork are served over rice with several condiments on top like chopped radish, avacado, chopped onion, feta cheese and lots of lime juice squeezes. It is absolutely delicious and beautiful!!

  • louie734  on  4/3/2016 at 6:47 AM

    Black beans and chickpeas are most used/cooked. I do love lentils, especially lentil salads (but I hate picking them over)!

  • love2chow  on  4/8/2016 at 12:00 PM

    chickpeas or garbanzo beans - left whole in salads and chilis and mashed in hummus.

  • pgarcia  on  4/9/2016 at 2:05 PM

    Living in San Antonio, I make a lot of pinto beans. YUM!
