I grew up eating beans as desserts, and they remain my favorite kind of sweets to this day. Adzuki and mung beans were always served as soups, or made into a sweet paste and stuffed into mochi (daifuku), pancake batter (taiyaki), or a flaky pastry (hopia). Soybeans were made into soy milk, and turned into a savory soybean soup (doujiang) or a sweet tofu pudding (douhua). One of my favorite desserts of all time is shaved ice (baobing) with as many toppings possible, including adzuki beans, mung beans, kidney beans, tofu pudding, boba, and a scoop of red bean ice cream, which are all then drizzled with condensed milk.
Created and submitted for the "Beans Around the World" contest, under the "It's BEAN in the Family for Generations" sub-category, this chili recipe is one of my go-to staples. It's a slightly-adapted version of a recipe from my grandma and is wonderfully simple. If you try it out just be sure to add generous spices (cumin, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, and oregano) if you aren't using a taco seasoning spice blend (and maybe add some extra even if you are).
Ribollita is a traditional recipe from the place where I come from, Tuscany, and in it there are, obviously, beans! Hope you like it ;-) It means re-cooked because you have to cook it twice, and also it is known that the day after you cook it, Ribollita is even better tasting.
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"
