Our family has enjoyed Grandma’s delicious pinto bean recipe for over 75 years. Even during the lean years, when money was scarce, my grandparents enjoyed a daily serving of pinto beans which provided protein, fiber, and other vitamins and minerals...and they were tasty to eat, too. We are grateful for the “ legacy of beans” in our family!
A quick and easy soup to warm our heart. My mama always make sweet beans soup since we were still kids. This is her recipe after adding more and more ingredients throughout the years. I asked her why adding so much in one pot, she says "add whatever beans you feel like eating and it will be yummy"
Beans Around The World.
I was so excited when I first saw a combined soup bowl, because I frequently order two different soups to comprise my meal when dining out. Besides, I prefer duets to solos, pairs skating to singles...and the same is true for flamenco dancing. The dancing eighth notes (on the left) join up with the dancing sixteenth notes (on the upper right) to dance together as a couple. The beans on the rim of the soup bowl are a reference to polka dots, a traditional pattern for flamenco dresses. And the cilantro garnish is a nod to the fan, which adds a beautiful texture while both concealing and revealing.
Jokai bableves is a Hungarian bean soup named for Hungarian writer Jokai Mor, a great lover of bean soup. My grandmother Zsuzsanna Somlo was too a great lover of bableves, and this recipe reminds me of being together in her warm kitchen when I was a little girl. Spending all weekend with my grandparents, cooking and eating with a warm bableves on the stove (always with delicious Hungarian nokedli) is, in my opinion, synonymous with love.
Pasta e Fagioli is a traditional italian soup and consists of inexpensive ingredients. There are a lot of variations of this dish, due to the availability of the ingredients in the different regions of Italy. Dean Martin popularized this dish with his song „That’s Amore“ which includes the lyrics "When the stars make you drool, just like pasta fazool, that's amore".
A stew using garbanzo beans, with African flair.
Of course, the beans can be soaked and cooked from scratch, fresh peppers can be roasted and peeled, fresh tomatoes can be peeled and chopped and spices can be freshly ground, rather than using ready-prepared ingredients if desired.
The spice quantities in this recipe produce a relatively mild flavour. For spice enthusiasts the amounts can be increased for a more punchy result.
When I was a child my dad often prepared this dish on Sunday in our home in Milan. He told me that these black-eyed peas in Egypt were called "Cleopatra's eyes". I think he was just kidding me, but it was a way to convince me to taste them ...
