Well. I’ve been told that I should steer clear of these delicious veg from the Solanaceae famjam. I guess these beloveds have in fact been betraying my bod while enticing my palate as they can trigger inflammation in people prone to it. Ugh. Here’s an homage to these mysterious veggies who have had my heart for a great many years. I’m sure I’ll still enjoy them from time to time, but like anything, moderation needs to be top of mind. Goodnight, my sweet night garden. Goodnight 🌙 💫
I've always thought bean seeds were incredibly beautiful - both the shape and the amazing colours. But I didn't realise how many different variations there were until I started gathering reference. Some of them are miniature works of art. And they taste great too!
Beans are so healthy and yet so underrated. They are high in fiber and score low on the glycemic index, which regulates the blood sugar. Beans are also a great source of protein and minerals such as iron, magnesium and zinc. It’s recommended to eat 3 cups of beans per week.
I'm not Japanese and I've never BEAN in Japan (even if it's in my dreams), but when I thought about beans it came immediately to my mind the movie "Sweet bean" because of the unique relationship between Ms. Toku (the main character) and the beans. She treated the adzuki beans for her dorayaki with love and respect, that's why her anko (the red bean paste) was so delicious!
Pinto Chile Pie has been a staple meal since I moved to the Southwest! It is a delicious, layered assortment of ingredients that are often sourced locally. Can't go wrong with pinto beans, rice, and green chile! Enjoy!
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.
