This is a simple but tasty recipe that goes back a few generations on my mom's side of the family. It's one of my favorites in wintertime. In honor of Dad, who liked the cornbread more than he did the beans, I added a bonus recipe for Tennessee Corn Pone, which you can make with the leftover beans when you're bored with eating them on their own! (The beans should be juicy.)
As a vegetarian, beans are a major part of my diet. When I got a dutch oven as a gift last year, I looked for different ways to use it. Discovering that I could cook dried beans in the oven without pre-soaking was a revelation! They're so much tastier than canned, and it's so easy. Beans rule!
Rajma is a rich, hearty, spicy, tangy quintessentially Indian Red Kidney bean recipe that is typically eaten with rice. The base is onions, tomatoes, ginger, garlic and green chilies. It is slow cooked with spices like cinnamon, cloves, black pepper and cumin till the aroma wafts through the air and the beans are smooth and tender. It is perfect with a squeeze of lime and a sprinkling of chopped onions.
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!

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.
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!
