Entry for the Beans Around the World Contest
My Aunt Dianne is famous in our family for making the most delicious Southern pinto beans. When I asked her for her recipe, I was shocked to find out that the dish was so simple; just put a few ingredients in the slow cooker and let them cook through a busy day. These comforting, savory cooked beans are the perfect main dish for a winter weeknight alongside some salty, buttery cornbread. They're also a super satisfying source of fiber, iron, and protein.
I created this illustration from Aunt Dianne's recipe in watercolor, pencil, and digital media. My mom Shelley and I created the hand lettering together with watercolor and digital media.
