Recommended Posts

Hi, all! I really want to know how to start eating Beans - good, easy recipes? I have just never had beans but really want to start but don't even know where to begin. Any help would be much appreciated.

I make a very simple turkey chili with kidney Beans. I also have made a black bean Soup with turkey and a little bit of bacon, diced tomatoes and chicken broth. Refried Beans are good too.

I guess I should have said I'm not a meat eater but thank you.

I'm not a vegetarian, but have made a pot of black Beans in my slow cooker a few times. I just tarted with dry Beans and added some Water and broth (I used beef but you could use vegetable or just water). I put in some dried onion and seasonings (random stuff from my spice drawer - Mexican spice and Moroccan spice I think). Near the end I mixed in some Rotel tomatoes and a can of fire roasted tomatoes so it came out kind of soupy. I added a block of cream cheese, too.

I ate beans for days!

Dark red kidney Beans well cooked with cheese and seasoned with Tony Chachere's seasoning was always a favorite of mine.

Yuck! I have always hated Beans. It's a texture issue with me and it did not change post surgery. I really wish they wouldn't gag me because they really are a great source of Protein.

Enjoy!

My tip would be to invest in a pressure cooker. Beans take a long time to cook, but pressure cookers make it so much faster. I make really great one-pot vegan bean dishes in my pressure cooker and it only take about 15 minutes of your active time and you wait about an hour and dinner is ready! I make a vegan chili, vegan baked Beans, even tried vegan curry beans! They're all great and quick dinner options for me.

Let me know if you want more info and I can send you myrecipes. Good luck!

Beans? That's an interesting choice. Well, I love Beans, of course when you have to eat same food everyday it can be tricky and turn into a torture. When I started following diets I found it pretty hard but veentually I stumbled upon this article. You can find some nice tips there.

I make a really simple black bean dish. It's just black Beans (I use canned so I don't have to rehydrate them), cinnamon, chili powder, and salt to taste. You can put a little lime juice in there too, if you like. It takes virtually no time to make and it's really good!
