What Is Your Favorite Kind of Bean?
Oct 22 2007 • By
That's true, lauren! They're not legumes :(
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.
green beans or lima beans
I couldn't possibly pick just one of those, they're all good for different things!
love black beans and so does my hubs so I cook them alot, red or pink beans (roman or pinto GOYA beans), Im Spanish as well and we make a lot of the rice ands peas (arroz con guandules - moro de guandules) nikodarling: I do the same thing I used to see my mom do it. Just so it during the weekend. Also pressure cookers cook them the best.
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
Pintos! I'm a refried kind of gal. ;)
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.
green bean casserole all the way!!!
Im not really a bean fan :(
Fava beans - they are so delicious and substantial, and mix elegantly with so many delicious dishes!
Black beans versatile and 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.
I love green beans the best, but I also love garbanzo, pinto and lentils!
is it sad that i don't know my beans? i think i like kidney beans in my chili, but baked beans are made with pinto beans, right?
Black Beans, Lentils & then Kidney!
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! :-)
I love black beans, with some white rice and queso fresco..yum!!!
