Broccoli flowers, carrot flowers, zucchini flowers, potato flowers....BEAN FLOWERS!! The beauty abounds my goodness. Black bean flowers in my garden grow a bold scarlet red, but they are as fragile as tissue paper. The beans within are earthy and a bit nutty (I can relate) and so delicious in salsa, chili, salads, soups, hummus (my fave), casseroles, this list goes on and on for these shiny, onyx black beauties. Here’s an homage to these hearty beans and their delicate flowers.
