Garbanzo. Cannellini. Fava. Calypso. Edamame. Adzuki. Itâ€™s true: beans have the coolest names ever. But besides that, theyâ€™re also one of natureâ€™s most perfect foods. Packed with protein, nutrients, and flavor, you might even call them a veganâ€™s #1 best friend (donâ€™t worry, we wonâ€™t tell the trail mix, veggies, or French fries!).
But with so much versatility and variety, where does one begin? Right inside these very pages, thatâ€™s where. In The Great Vegan Bean Book, author Kathy Hester primes you on everything you need to know about the best way to cookâ€”and eat!â€”every bean youâ€™ve ever seen (and a few you probably havenâ€™t). From soaking times, to cooking times, to what to purÃ©e, to what to sautÃ©, youâ€™ll be dancing delicious circles around those legumes in no time.
Not only that, but youâ€™ll also get to try your handâ€”or is it your mouth?â€”at some of the tastiest, most innovative bean recipes in this lentil-filled land. From beanalicious burritos, to pretty-pea curry, to legume-laced blondies, youâ€™ll be partying protein-style, every meal of the day!
