  • Pineapple rum beans over coconut lime sweet potatoes

    • anightowl on October 20, 2016

      The sweet potatoes are fantastic in this recipe - I had never tried lime in my sweet potatoes before - it was a new and very good combination. The beans were good, but flavor could have been bumped up a bit - maybe more cumin, or even a Middle Eastern baharat. The dish also lacked "crunch." Some nuts or lightly sauteed, but still crunchy, onions added as a garnish would have done the trick. I garnished each plate with a sprinkle of coconut and some finger lime vesicles for little pops of flavor.

Garbanzo. Cannellini. Fava. Calypso. Edamame. Adzuki. It’s true: beans have the coolest names ever. But besides that, they’re also one of nature’s most perfect foods. Packed with protein, nutrients, and flavor, you might even call them a vegan’s #1 best friend (don’t worry, we won’t tell the trail mix, veggies, or French fries!).

But with so much versatility and variety, where does one begin? Right inside these very pages, that’s where. In The Great Vegan Bean Book, author Kathy Hester primes you on everything you need to know about the best way to cook—and eat!—every bean you’ve ever seen (and a few you probably haven’t). From soaking times, to cooking times, to what to purée, to what to sauté, you’ll be dancing delicious circles around those legumes in no time.

Not only that, but you’ll also get to try your hand—or is it your mouth?—at some of the tastiest, most innovative bean recipes in this lentil-filled land. From beanalicious burritos, to pretty-pea curry, to legume-laced blondies, you’ll be partying protein-style, every meal of the day!
