Re: In search of bean recipes Updated w/ another question

Here's two:

Lentil salad

- 1 Lb lentils – cooked, drained – set aside
- 6 scallions, chopped (I’ve also used a small red onion with good results too)
- garlic minced
- Jar of roasted red peppers, chopped
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 3-4 tbs red wine vinegar
- ½ cup fresh dill
- ½ lb crumbled feta
- salt and pepper to taste

Mix and let marinate for 30 minutes.

-------------------

Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

- 1 bag lentils, cooked/drained
- 5-6 medium-large potatoes – cooked and prepare as mashed potatoes
- 2 celery stalks, minced
- 1 small can tomato sauce
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped
- olive oil for sautéing
- favorite herbs – Ie, Basil. Oregano, parsley

Preheat oven to 350

Sautee onion, celery, and garlic in olive oil. Add cooked lentils, tomato sauce, herbs, salt and pepper. Pour into baking pan (I use a 9 x 13) and cover with the mashed potatoes. Bake about 25 minutes

Re: In search of bean recipes Updated w/ another question

I'm glad somebody posted about bean recipes. I was going to post the same question. I'm tired of chili, baked beans, etc. too. I'm a vegetarian so I need to eat more beans for protein then I currently do so thanks for some of the good recipes and keep them coming.
I've also found a couple of bean cookbooks at the library that have a lot of good recipes, you should try that. Also, I'm sure you can find a lot on the internet which is what I was about to search for.

This sounds great. I grew up in England with tradtional meaty shepherd's pie and I'm so excited to try a good vegetarian alternative...

REFRIED BEANS:
I like to make quesadillas with these.
Saute 1 onion and 3 garlic cloves.
Add 1 tsp ground cumin & cook for another minute.
Mash or blend 1 can of any beans ( I don't know about garbanzos??) and add it to the onion.
Throw in some chopped or dried parsley, salt and pepper.
Spread the beans on a tortilla and sprinkle some cheese on top and close it with another tortilla.
Put in the toaster oven or microwave until cheese has melted and VOILA
NOTE: tortillas burn quickly in the toaster oven.

Enjoy

Re: Answer to your question

I believe 2 cups of dried beans will make approximately 1 can of regular..

You could cook up the whole package of dried beans and freeze what you don't use into 'one can' portions

Hope that helps

Re: In search of bean recipes Updated w/ another question

I love three bean salad, and what I do to make it at home is add whatever three kind of beans turns you on. I like green, kidney, and black. Then I add some vinegar, a little water, a pinch of sugar and then salt and pepper. I'm not sure of amounts, I just taste it as I go. I also like to add pimentos to it. Serve it chilled for a light lunch. You can also add some fresh basil to it.
