This is a dish I concocted one evening as I was rummaging through my cupboards fancying something beany with a smoky flavour which would also use up a random carrot and a few tomatoes. I'm always delighted when these dishes turn out well and this one has become a favourite of mine. You can have it with rice, in fajitas or with (my favourite), baked sweet potato. The combination of the smoky beans with the sweetness of sweet potato is a total delight, nom! Happy beaning!

This illustration is about my father-in-law's family recipe of Caribbean kidney beans. These are great as a side dish and have been a great way for me to bond with my in-laws, teaching me how to cook and making me part of the family. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Beans are such a versatile ingredient! Cook soup, snack, main dish or a dessert, switch between the cuisines, mix them up! The possibilities of bean dishes are endless and there is just a tiny part of the amazing things you can cook from them, all belonging to different cultures, all using different beans, all different courses, but all so amazingly tasty!
Who needs meat when you have the perfect filler, right off of the grocery store shelf? Growing up, I would eat tacos at least once a week and I carried that tradition happily into my adulthood. Becoming vegan in college didn't stop me! The humble bean was my savior. Just add garlic, cumin, cayenne, and lime and it becomes the perfect filler! Veganism taught me to appreciate the humble bean in it's simplicity.
Beans around the World...Ahoy Matey! This recipe is said to be from the mid 1800’s, from a staple of “Yankee” real cooking, Durgin-Park in Boston, sadly now closed, but I have the recipe from a visit a few years ago. The Best baked beans ever, deep brown, and delicious! The key is, you have to keep them moist over the six hours of baking, adding water slowly, as the recipe says, “you can’t just let the pot sit in the oven’...and don’t flood the beans! You can leave the pork out, I never use it and half the sugar...you won’t be disappointed! A simple & perfect comfort dish on damp, grey days to warm your soul, and hey, they are “Navy” beans after all😝
Ribollita is a traditional recipe from the place where I come from, Tuscany, and in it there are, obviously, beans! Hope you like it ;-) It means re-cooked because you have to cook it twice, and also it is known that the day after you cook it, Ribollita is even better tasting.
It’s BEAN in the Family for Generations competition entry by Sara Theuerkauf:
Nothing beats a warm, comforting meal on a cold winter's night. This illustration is inspired by winters spent growing up in Nova Scotia. We had many cold, snowy nights and this simple, flavourful meal was a favourite and one we continue to return to each winter season. We'd slather mom's brown porridge bread with butter and use it to sop up the leftover sauce. The recipe is based on a recipe in the book by Marie Nightingale titled "Out of Old Nova Scotia Kitchens".
