Kitschy, I know, but this is the recipe that reminds me of being a kid. We had a limited rotation of meals when I was growing up as my mom wasn’t much of a cook and relied heavily on simple recipes she pulled from magazines. Beans ’N Wieners Waikiki was one of those recipes. My sisters and I would always be excited when it was bubbling in the oven. It was a fun meal and a departure from much of what we ate, such as liver and corned beef. This is the kind of meal that harkens back to a different time and it is always a crowd-pleaser, particularly with kids. It is the first dish that comes to mind when I think of beans, in this case, navy beans. This sweet and simple dish will always have a special place in my heart, and I hope my illustration expresses the joy of childhood that it evokes in my memories.
Beans and legumes are some of the most underrated foods on the planet, and eating more beans and legumes as a source of protein instead of meat is also environmentally friendly. People can add beans to their favorite recipes, replace meat with beans, and try new bean-based spreads.
They are excellent sources of dietary fiber, protein, B vitamins and many other important vitamins and minerals. There is good evidence that they can help reduce blood sugar, improve cholesterol levels and help maintain a healthy gut.
Tacu - Tacu by KatoyJena, DE
I don't usually eat beans, but when it´s about Tacu-Tacu I don't think twice. This delicious dish is the food par excellence in Peru, as it is a simple and effective way to use leftover rice and beans and get as a result a tasty and nutritious meal.
Tacu - Tacu means also tradition because of its main ingredients: Yellow Chilli Pepper and Canary beans, both of them originated in Peru and used in the original recipe.
Of course it´s also possible to replace the canary with the navy beans, so there is no excuse to try it!
Beans Around The World: Italian? Or American?
Nonno (Grandpa) was Italian and he made these beans for my dad, who rarely left his farm (Va Via Farm) in Michigan. So I thought I'd have a little fun with the idea of whether this farm scene could be re-imagined as an Italian scene. Actually, though, dad didn't really have a silo. If he did, he certainly would not have let the roof rust!
The other question of the day is whether Nonno's Bean Blend is wine or hot sauce? You'll only know by trying some, since "No-one says 'no' to Nonno"!
Photo credit goes to Sandra Salamony, who took the photograph from which Nonno's close-up is based. Thanks, Sandra!
This one is a favourite with my family and relatives when we go camping or on tours through the Australian outback. The baked beans are the main feature, and very filling for the children in our group. It's a very extravagant meal that is easily prepared over the camp fire. We often find that we need very little lunch or dinner for the rest of the day!
The mountain featured in the background is Mount Connor. This is located near Curtin Springs in the Northern Territory.
As a Vegan, beans are part of my daily meals. I love all kinds of them and I know they have superpower to save the world. Not only they are super tasty. But the have the potential to give us the amount of protein, fiber and vitamins we need. Latinoamerican Rice and Beans are a complete meal, as rice provides aminoacids that could be missing on beans. So this simple and tasty food could change the way we eat, could save the enviroment, could save the animals, and save the world. Forget meat, EAT BEANS!
This savoury number is a dynamo fave in my house, especially on chilly winter nights. The subtle, soft, nutty, humbly distinguished notes of the Great Northern are enhanced by the wham bam (!) flavours of zesty, bright lemon juice; sweet, deep roasted garlic; strong, piney rosemary; peppery paprika; and the slickness that can only be imparted by a good olive oil. Blended together and then spread generously on a cracker or a hot out of the oven pita toastie (preferred!) is sublime experience...one that can make a meal or a snack with a glass of good wine just heaven.

The day on which it is traditionally eaten is commonly known as the Laba Festival. The earliest form of this dish was cooked with red beans and has since developed into many different kinds. It is mainly made up of many kinds of rice, beans, peanuts, dried fruit, lotus seeds.
In the Han Dynasty, during the Laba Festival, people did not consume Laba congee as it was used for worship the gods. In the Northern and Southern Dynasties period, the date of the Laba Festival was fixed on the eighth day of the twelfth lunar month. In the Song Dynasty, Laba congee was widely consumed throughout China by not only the common people, but also government officials and aristocrats. In the Qing Dynasty, the Laba Festival was sometimes celebrated as the "Spring Festival", and Laba congee became even more popular. In the imperial court, the emperor and nobles gave Laba congee to the officials, servants, and others.
