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.
For Beans around the world contest - Red Kidney beans in Indian style gravy
The word ‘Rajma’ means Red kidney beans in Hindi and ‘Chawal’ refers to Rice. This spicy red kidney bean dish cooked in tomato gravy is eaten with hot steamed rice; hence - the name. Rajma Chawal is a staple in every Indian household, not to mention that it is also one of the most popular and the most favorite vegetarian dishes of the Indian community.
Red beans are used as a mixture of sweet foods in various countries, such as bread stuffing, dorayaki, or mochi. While in Indonesia, beans which are often called red beans are also often processed into soups to the ice menu which is a typical drink of Palembang, South Sumatra. Besides being fresh, red bean ice also has many benefits. This is because the nutritional content in red beans is useful to ward off free radicals, healthy digestion, optimize brain function, increase body energy and much more.
Beans Around The World.
This recipe is for cowboys all around the world! Twice I attended a concert by the Mongolian Throat Singers. Each time I was surprised to discover how familiar the songs were. Turns out they were singing about Mongolian cowboys! I guess all cowboys share a certain culture.
My inspiration for this chili came from a recipe for prairie beans that I thought originated from my great-aunt. However, I have since discovered "her" recipe (also known as pioneer beans or cowboy beans) all over the internet...for good reason, because they are very tasty. I hope you will think my chili is tasty, too.
It’s so important it is to know what is in our food and have control over what we put into our bodies. Cooking the whole food way doesn’t have to be time consuming or difficult. I wanted to illustrate how simple it is to cook dried beans from scratch. I created storybook style characters both to engage the viewer but also to reinforce that message of simplicity. Also a fun and healthy way to introduce children to cooking.
Years ago, I had my first taste of slow cooked, French Canadian-style baked beans. It was what I’ll call a time stopping gustatory experience. It was mid February, cold as heck and I was on a journalism school assignment to report on the sights and sounds and all to be savoured at Festival du Voyageur....for those of you not familiar.....this annual festival is unique to my hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It all happens in our fantastic French Quarter, Saint-Boniface and is the largest winter event of its kind in Western Canada. Voyageurs worked for fur companies transporting goods by boat between trading posts. Voyageur, Métis and First Nations histories are celebrated amid happy fiddles playing, people jigging, hearty laughter, twinkle lights, bonfires, evergreens and delicious, traditional food (split pea soup, sugar pie|tarte a sucre, maple candy hardened in snow, tourtiere|meat pie, and that’s just the start!). Back to the beans. They had been cooked for hours in an old school clay bean pot by a man with a waxed moustache wearing a humongous fur hat. The navy beans were warm, tender and delicately starchy. The hunks of salt pork adding just enough unctuous, meaty flavour. But the crowning achievement of the dish was its beautifully sweet and savoury sauce. Glorious in its simplicity, it stuck fast to every bean creating an amber-hued sheen over every morsel. It’s February next month, right? My tum is rumbling.
Feijoada is the Brazilian national dish, a richer mixture of meats, black beans and lots of flavour. There are as many recipes as cookers, but always with the black beans as the main character... and here is my version: the way I like it on my table on Saturdays! Enjoy this dish, that is the culinary translation of Brazilians rich mixture of cultures, colours and flavours!
Wow What a difference good dried beans make. I was given a wonderful gift pack and have been having fun trying out new recipes with them. I think I made up my own category with this variety of bean as I didn't see it included in list but it should be !
What I love the most about travelling is to try every single dish I find on my way ..
I remember perfectly when I had my first CHANA Masala and how deeply it made me fall in love with Indian cuisine!
In this vegetarian dish is all about Garbanzos beans , Cooked in a spicy curry sauce and usually served with white rice or naan bread. So yummy you would not believe it!
