I use twelve different varieties of beans in my `F**k Texas' chili - then I capture all the flatulence in a 10 gallon hat.

Not necessarily. It's used as a dessert often, but nothing dictates that you must use it as a dessert. It's not as if it is naturally sweet.

I know. I put a lot of brown sugar in my red bean paste. I love them as dessert so much I can't help but use them for that.

I love red beans as well, and don't care if it's dessert or not. Yum.

That aside, next week's thread may be slow.. maybe we should do a "show me da feast you have laid out"? Or... anyone with better ideas?

I miss red beans and rice. I developed a kidney bean allergy about 10 years ago after having had them almost monthly my entire life.

I make butter beans similar to how I used to have red beans. They're delicious.

My mom does a thing where she takes kidney beans and pinto beans and some other kid of beans and puts them in a crock pot with half a cup of brown sugar, a pound of ground beef, a pound of bacon cut into bits and cooked until crispy, and chopped up caramelized onion. She just let's it all sit together for a few hours in the crock pot and it smells f*cking awesome.

Best bean recipe:

1. Make Yankee-style "chili"
2. Remove every single godforsaken bean by hand.
3. Enjoy!

I'll post my cassoulet recipe later.  It takes 5 hours to cook, but it's the most amazing stick-to-your ribs hearty meal for a cold weekend in January that you can imagine.  Here's a teaser photo.

I like making adzuki beans. Throw in the pressure cooker for about 20min (takes an hour and a half if you boil them), then:

saute onions until soft in canola oil
add dried chili flakes and fenugreek seeds, cook additional couple of minutes
add the cooked beans
add paprika, chili powder, and salt
cook until soft

I chop up a habanero and put it in my bean-soaking water...let them frijoles soak up all that capsaicin overnight. Then cook em in a crock pot for a few more hours, mash em up, and use em in my fajitas. By that point the habaneros are mellow enough to add just a bit of fruity pepper flavor and a little back end heat.

Try it some time if you haven't done that already.

Some sausage, tomatoes, onion, garlic and fresh ground black pepper.  I do it all in my pressure cooker and start to finish is under two hours.  With the pressure cooker I don't have to soak the beans overnight or any of that crap.  Brown the sausage in it, melt the onions down a little while doing the sausage, dumps the rest in, seal it up, and set it for 80 minutes and walk away.

I love good red beans and rice but haven't figured out a good recipe yet.  love black beans, too.  The pressure cooker makes it all simple and easy.

/Shameless plug for the Nesco PC6-25P.  They rock.  The only thing in my kitchen I use more is the coffee maker.

I add in sausage, an onion, mushrooms, and a bunch of garlic.  Eat the next day - put a slice of cheddar on top of the bowl and microwave.  So damn good and filling.

Every Irish recipe calls for exactly 239 beans, one extra and you'll have too farty . . .

Beans are the single biggest food group of my whole diet.  When I looked into the paleo diet, I saw that beans were disallowed.  I dropped any idea of doing paleo.  And about flatulence, when you eat a lot of beans they don't cause gas because your system has gotten used to digesting them.

ceci soup:

1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced celery
4 large cloves of garlic minced

Sautee the above for twenty or thirty minutes under very low heat until thoroughly sweated.

Then add 3 large cans of Goya chickpeas and one can of Roman beans
Add 4 cans of water.
Use an immersion blender to puree half of the beans

Cook for two hours on low.
Then add one tablespoon of dried or two of fresh rosemary in a tea ball.
Cook for twenty or thirty minutes more.
Remove rosemary, serve with grated parm. or romano cheese.

There's a restaurant in Denver that has a delicious rabbit cassoulet. And I always seem to forget that I'm allergic to the white beans in it, so I end up barfing.

Almost worth it anyway.

Anyname's soon to be world famous Red Beans

2 lbs Dried Small Kidney(Red) Beans - Soak Overnight
1 huge chopped onion
1 tsp salt (optional)
1/2 cup chopped shallot tops (if you can't get this use more onion)
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 large chopped green pepper
1/8 tsp. Cayenne
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 1/3 tbs garlic
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
2 tbs parsley
2 bay leaves
2 lbs Louis Rich smoked turkey sausage, sliced ½ inch thick
1 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. basil


Throw all the above into an 8 qt.(big) pot and mix. Add water to about an inch below the top of the beans, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to lowest setting on stove and cover pot. Cook while stirring occasionally till the beans are tender (3 hrs) and the onions and pepper are cooked down to a tasty goo.

Serve w/ cooked brown rice

I sometimes get a ham steak, blacken it, cut it in cubes and toss it in.  A vegetarian friend makes it w/ out the sausage and serves it over homemade cornbread.
