There are so many great beans. I wish I had more ideas to use the French flageolet bean.

green beans are veggies, not legumes... they don't belong on this list really... I LOVE black beans and Baked beans!

Don't have a favorite--I love them all.

Black beans are my favorite, but I've never met a bean I didn't like. And I agree -- home-cooked beans are best (I love my crock pot and my pressure cooker), but I'll resort to canned beans in a pinch.

I'm originally from New Orleans, so I love red beans (not canned, but slow cooked from scratch!) with andouille and tasso ham; so good. Also,lima beans and, I don't know if they're technically beans, but vegetarian split peas with a touch of sesame oil and red wine vinegar.

Ema- If you tried buying frozen and boiling then adding butter, S&P and a bit of garlic salt/ powder you may think different... I'm a Lima Bean pusher! haha

I love beans, blacks are my favorites. My family is Dominican and when my grandmother visits New York she always makes a white bean stew called "Caldo Gallego", it's delicious.

I love all those types of beans...I don't like lima beans, that's about it. I love beans in soups and chili, so good.

It depends, I love chana masala and falafel so garbanzo beans are up there, but my husband puts fresh black beans in his chili recipe and they are sooo delish.

krazykarot- I'm SO with you! I LOVE lima beans... you HAVE to use the frozen ones and use butter and S&P but I've gotten so many of my friends to love them too! My Dad used to call me lima bean when I was little b/c I loved so much! :-)
