Beans are so healthy and yet so underrated. They are high in fiber and score low on the glycemic index, which regulates the blood sugar. Beans are also a great source of protein and minerals such as iron, magnesium and zinc. It’s recommended to eat 3 cups of beans per week.
I'm not Japanese and I've never BEAN in Japan (even if it's in my dreams), but when I thought about beans it came immediately to my mind the movie "Sweet bean" because of the unique relationship between Ms. Toku (the main character) and the beans. She treated the adzuki beans for her dorayaki with love and respect, that's why her anko (the red bean paste) was so delicious!
Feijoada is one of the most popular dishes in Brazil. It is made with black beans and some smoked meat and it's served with rice, farofa, collard and sliced orange. We usually eat it on fridays or on weekends. Feijoada Dumpling is a different way of preparing it. A creative version of one of the most famous Brazilian dishes. It is delicious and goes great with a really cold beer.
Fresh, crunchy, creamy and tangy...this bean salad is healthy comfort food. I always make a huge bowlful expecting it to last 2-3 days but it never does! I use as many colours and textures in the vegetables as I can so it looks as good as it tastes. Whenever I feel a little run down, this salad is my go-to booster!
Pinto Chile Pie has been a staple meal since I moved to the Southwest! It is a delicious, layered assortment of ingredients that are often sourced locally. Can't go wrong with pinto beans, rice, and green chile! Enjoy!
Beans Around the World
Stewed red beans (also white and black beans) are a hallmark of Dominican nutrition, most Dominicans eat them almost every day, and I have hated them with a passion since I was a little girl (my mom forced me to eat them because they're rich on Iron), beans have always been my least favorite food. A couple of years ago my sister was having some friends over and she prepared this Beans Salad recipe, which I almost refused to taste (on account that I hate beans), but when I finally gave in and tasted it, I loved it, I was like, If there is a good-tasting way of preparing beans why do they make that horrible stewed beans, and why was I forced to eat them when I was a kid? My mom could have given me this salad and I would have loved to eat beans. The point of this story is to say that this recipe is really tasty and I love it, even though I hate beans.
