Simple, practical, and flavorful bean recipes have a place in almost any kitchen. The Mighty Bean, by veteran cookbook author Judith Choate, is a collection of 100 recipes that offer just that.
With recipes for appetizers, soups, salads, main courses, side dishes, and snacks and sweets, Choate shows you how to prepare a huge range of legumes, from familiar stalwarts such as brown lentils and chickpeas to Ayocote Negro beans. You can serve a lima bean chowder; a salad of edamame, fennel, and chicken; a cannellini bean pizza; or black bean crepes. Choate is generous with her suggestions about substituting one bean for another and projects a quiet confidence that you will soon be enjoying beans at home.
