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!
My illustration is aimed at encouraging people to use dry beans in recipes, by presenting the easy method of cooking them. I love the variety of dry beans available, so I've illustrated a few of the different shapes colours and sizes (from adzuki to black eyed peas, from pinto beans to black beans). As many middle eastern recipes use pulses in the cooking I have decorated the page with appropriate patterns and warm terracotta colours.
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"

AZÚCAR!, as Cuban artist Celia Cruz would sing, is the secret to this Christmas dish I look forward to every holiday. My grandma, and now my mom have been cooking it up for our gatherings for years ever since I could remember. Served over white rice with a side of Yuca, as well as a choice of meat (typically pork from /la caja china/ for my family), the subtle sweetness of these beans paired with the savory notes of the rest of the sides is unlike any other. Full recipe coming to my website, alyssamariag.com, soon; add a little sugar and enjoy!
