Beans

We store canned beans against emergencies and use them up within the year, at the rate of one to two cans per week. We pick organic and Northwest labels. Ideas:

  • Garbanzo and salad beans – cold in salads.
  • Garbanzo and northern beans – pureed with garlic for a spread.
  • Pinto and black beans – added to sauteed onions, mashed for a side dish.
  • Lentils – added to sauteed onions, add 1/2 Tbs. garam masala, side dish for Indian spiced dinner.
  • Northern beans – with sauteed onion and pork in soup or stew. Winter dish! (Monica Downen of Monica’s Waterfront Bakery and Cafe makes a great version of this).
  • Kidney beans, red beans – beans and rice.
  • Red beans, northern beans, garbanzo beans – with pasta in a soup.
