Has there ever been a more generous ingredient than the bean? Down-home, yet haute, soul-satisfyingly hearty, valued, versatile, deeply delectable, healthful, and inexpensive to boot, there’s nothing a bean can’t do—and there doesn't seem to be anything that Bean by Bean author Crescent Dragonwagon can’t do with beans!From old friends like chickpeas and pintos to rediscovered heirloom beans like rattlesnake beans and teparies, from green beans and fresh shell beans to peanuts, lentils, and peas, Bean by Bean is the definitive cookbook on beans. Its 175+ recipes are a cornucopia of valuable information, kitchen wisdom, lore, anecdotes, and a zest for good food and good times.
“Thanks PHG, you have great customer service. It wasn't about what you could sell me. It was about what was the right part.”
– Nancy E., LA
Consider the lentil, to take one example. Discover it first in a delicious Lentil Tapenade recipe, then in half a dozen soups including Sahadi’s Lebanese Lentil Soup with Spinach, Kerala-Style Dahl, and Crescent’s Very, Very Best Lentil, Mushroom & Barley Soup. It then turns up in Marinated Lentils De Puy with Greens, Baked Beets, Oranges & Walnuts. Plus there’s Jamaica Jerk-Style Lentil-Vegetable Patties, Ethiopian Lentil Stew, and Lentil-Celeriac Skillet Sauce. Do the same 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 Fresh Favas, Baked Limas with Rosy Sour Cream, Edamame in a Pod. And on and on—from starters and soups to dozens of entrees. Even desserts: Peanut Butter Cup Brownies and Red Bean Ice Cream.
