This is one of my favourite beany recipes. Suitable for vegetarians also, this recipe is a great family meal. You can really use whatever beans you like, I've just illustrated a few of my favourites. (you could even use baked beans!)
Beans Around The World.
I've been waiting for an idea that would fit into a rotated format, and this recipe fits the bill! This is a dish that I've made several times, and each time I put in too much cayenne pepper (or perhaps I substituted habanero pepper, but that's another story). Anyway, I always have to go into "remedy" mode by adding peanut butter, sugar, and then doubling (ok, usually tripling) the remaining ingredients to cut the heat. So now I think of those steps as part of the recipe! However, it leaves me with plenty of leftovers to freeze. "Gold in the freezer", says my sister about leftovers.
The burst of flavours from the Rajma combined with steaming hot long grain rice is the kind of stuff where gastronomical pleasure meets your fondest childhood memory of mom made food. For an Indian child, A hot bowl of Rajma curry made with red kidney beans, cooked with an array of masalas with rice hits as close to home as possible, wherever in the world he is.
No one likes reading an essay while cooking! And for me the measurements were always more like guidelines, so I created this recipe format, for like-minded chaotic cooks.
Homely, filling, scrumptious and MESSY! Not a recipe for those who cringe from dripping food and chaotic kitchen counters. Best devoured asap after cooking!
Something my Dad used to throw together for me when I was a kid (though with about 12x the amount of cheese). I've revived it as a staple lunch in my adult life... but it's never quite as good as his...
This recipe has been a favorite in our house since hubby and I first married. It's quick, easy and super tasty! The black beans, cilantro, lime and green chilies provide a perfect dose of Latin American flair to make this dish one you will want to make a staple in your household, as well.

Beans are such a good substitution for meat. They're packed with protein and taste great. This bean burger recipe has even passed the test of a group of picky kids (some of them even liking it more than the beef burger in the 'taste test' we conducted).
A tian is a type of french baking dish and is also the name for a vegetable casserole baked in that style of clay container. This is a recipe that my family has been enjoying for years! It's a fabulous protein-rich vegetarian dish with the addition of beans, cheese and eggs. I like to eat mine with a sprinkle of red peppers and lemon juice. Makes excellent leftovers too!
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.
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!
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!

My mother-in-law invented this recipe as a way to feed herself and her five children on a tight budget. I confess that I didn't understand it at first, because the only goulash I had eaten was in a red sauce over noodles, whereas this recipe has other starches and has a firmer texture. However, I've come to think of it not only as comfort food, but as a kind of "stone soup" recipe, since I would not have thought to combine those particular ingredients. The stone soup thought led me to the trainyard setting, a place where all kinds of people from different backgrounds gather. It's a total coincidence, yet a happy coincidence, that I submit this illustration on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
This is a recipe that brings back lots of feelings of nostalgia. The peas, referring to 'Gunga Peas', are commonly replaced by 'Red Kidney' beans and are definitely my preference! This a a traditional dish from the West Indies that would always be cooked by my mum for our family Sunday dinners together. I love cooking it myself now, but still alwasy prefer mum's!!
