I'm a student at MassArt and had a lot of fun working on my first illustrated recipe! Kouloudia (or Koulourakia) is a Greek cookie popular for Easter (Red eggs at Easter are also a Greek tradition.) Having a Greek grandmother and being a picky eater as a kid, Kouloudia has always found its way to my plate any time of year.

Few bean dishes have more regional variations than hummus, a Middle Eastern/Mediterranean dip made from chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans). It can be silky-smooth or chunky or whole-bean; spicy or nutty or herbed; topped with za'atar or paprika or pine nuts or olives or parsley. No matter whether Egyptian or Syrian, Lebanese or Israeli, Turkish or Greek, it's guaranteed to be delicious! (Who doesn't love earthy chickpeas and buttery tahini drizzled with olive oil?)
So grab a piece of pita bread or some fresh veggies, and start dipping!
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.
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.)
Happy tummy, healthy body!

Feijoada is one of the most popular dishes in Brazil. It is made with black beans and some smoked meat and it's served with rice, farofa, collard and sliced orange. We usually eat it on fridays or on weekends. Feijoada Dumpling is a different way of preparing it. A creative version of one of the most famous Brazilian dishes. It is delicious and goes great with a really cold beer.
This illustration is about my father-in-law's family recipe of Caribbean kidney beans. These are great as a side dish and have been a great way for me to bond with my in-laws, teaching me how to cook and making me part of the family. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
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.
