    Bean recipes wanted

    I have been trying to make a bean dish each week. There are many soup recipes so am looking for bean recipes other than soup. The best one I tried recently was Black Bean Lasagna. It tasted wonderful, froze and reheated well.

    A couple of bean salads:

    black bean salad- mix can of black beans, small can of corn (not creamed), some red onion, cilantro, diced bell pepper (I use yellow orange or red for color appeal). Dressing is lime juice, honey and about a 1/2 t of cumin.

    3 (or more) bean salad: mix 1 or more of black beans, white beans, red kidney beans, a can of chickpeas, about equal amount of frozen green beans to equal one can. Add diced onion, garlic if you want and some chopped parsley. Dress with a vinagrette (2 parts oil, 1 part vinegar). I also add an Italian dried herb mix (maybe a teaspoon).

    Other favorite bean recipe is black bean burgers. This one is good: https://theprudenthomemaker.com/black-bean-burgers/

    Bean brownies. I use black soy beans, just about the only time I use soy.
    They're more cake-like than brownie-esque, and good with brandy/cream cheese frosting.

    As I recall, the recipe I used called for more eggs, and I used avocado oil and a sugar substitute. There are lots of recipes out there for these.

    I've found tons just by googling the type of bean and the word "recipe". i.e. "pinto bean recipes". Unfortunately, once I print out the recipe, I don't save the links. Good luck!

    One of my favorites from when I ate beans*:

    Foul Mudammas <== pronounced "Fool MǝDAHMas"

    30 oz. fava beans (canned/rinsed or cooked from dried beans)
    15 oz. garbanzo beans (canned/rinsed or cooked from dried beans)
    2 T olive oil
    4 cloves of garlic, chopped
    4 medium size tomatoes, diced (and peeled if you like) (about 8 oz)
    1 T fresh or 1 t dried thyme
    6 oz preserved lemon, rinsed/diced
    1/4 cup lemon juice

    Heat garlic gently in 1 T olive oil in a heavy pan. Add tomatoes,
    thyme, and half of the preserved lemon. Simmer for five minutes.
    Stir in beans and remaining preserved lemon. Cook covered on medium
    heat at least 20 minutes, stirring now and then (or if you prefer,
    bake). Before serving, add remaining olive oil and lemon juice.

    It is traditional to garnish this dish with carmelized onions.


    * I've discovered (canned) black soybeans. Very low in net carbohydrates. When canned, they have a good bean-like texture. I guess you can get that cooking them, too, though I haven't seen them dried anywhere (okay, I haven't looked that hard). I've used them in a couple of recipes now and like them. Spendy but they scratch an itch like nothing else can.

    Similar texture, yes. Fava beans are higher in fiber and protein.

    Growing up in San Antonio, cooking a pot of pintos is a tradition with us. I use the quick soak method (boil and turn off for an hour) but you can also soak overnight. Simmer till tender with onion, garlic, cumin, pinch of chili powder, bacon fat or ham bone (or liquid smoke if you don't do meat). Salt at the end. This morning we are making huevos rancheros with a side of mashed pintos.
