Crescent Dragonwagon


Has there ever been a extra beneficiant component than the bean? Down-home, but haute, soul-satisfyingly hearty, valued, flexible deeply delectable, healthy, and cheap as well, there’s not anything a bean can’t do—and not anything that Crescent Dragonwagon can’t do with beans. From outdated neighbors like chickpeas and pintos to rediscovered heirloom beans like rattlesnake beans and teparies, from eco-friendly beans and clean shell beans to peanuts, lentils, and peas, Bean through Bean is the definitive cookbook on beans. It’s a 175-plus recipe cornucopia overflowing with info, kitchen knowledge, lore, anecdotes, and a zest for solid nutrients and sturdy times.

Consider the lentil, to take one instance. detect it first in a scrumptious slather, Lentil Tapenade. Then in part a dozen soups, together with Sahadi’s Lebanese Lentil Soup with Spinach, Kerala-Style Dahl, and Crescent’s Very, best possible Lentil, Mushroom & Barley Soup. It then turns up in Marinated Lentils De Puy with vegetables, Baked Beets, Oranges & Walnuts. Plus there’s Jamaica Jerk-Style Lentil-Vegetable Patties, Ethiopian Lentil Stew, and Lentil-Celeriac Skillet Sauce. Do a similar for black beans—from Tex-Mex Frijoles Dip to Feijoada Vegetariana to Maya’s Magic Black Beans with Eggplant & Royal Rice. Or shell beans—Newly Minted Puree of unpolluted Favas, Baked Limas with Rosy bitter Cream, Edamame in a Pod. And on and on—from starters and soups to dozens of entrees. Even cakes: Peanut Butter Cup cakes and pink Bean Ice Cream.
