Do you like beans?

My family loves beans and I'd like some new recipes. If you have one, would you share?

  • We eat beans a lot. We have great recipes.
    For Black beans and rice it is so easy..
    2 cans black beans,
    1 can diced tomato with some sort of spices, oregano or what ever you like
    ! med-large onion
    2-3 stalks of celry
    10 or so mini carrots (or one or two large)
    olive oil.

    cut celery, onions and carrots, put in a frying pan with olive oil 3-4 T.
    Sweat, this means to put a lid on and let them simmer genlty until soft. No browning.
    Add Black beans that have been rinsed. Tomato and spices.

    Serve over brown rice. You can make this is 15 min. You can add corn to it if you like.
    My spice cabinet usually would have garlic (fresh or not) Italian seasoning, celery salt or regular salt.
    Perhaps Tabasco.

  • I LOVE beans. I am a vegetarian, so I often use beans where other people would use meat products. Last weekend, DH and I made the most wonderful vegetarian chili using a variety of beans. I also make an easy mexican-type casserole using black beans--it's fast and everyone loves it. Let me know if you want either recipe and I will PM it to you as there's not enough room here for them.
