Poor Little Vegans


Oh Boy! Bob and I collaborated and pulled off our very first successful falafel, thanks to tips from Angelina of Angelina’s Kitchen in Pittsboro and the aid of a new blender/food processer. We paired it with hummus, tzatziki, cucumbers, tomatoes and piled it into locally baked pita bread. So many ways to prepare beans and I aim to explore all of them.

Red Red
Chole (curried chick peas)
Hoppin John
Refried Beans (for fajitas)
Black Bean Soup
Cassoulet (white bean stew)
Lentil Chard Stew
Chili Mac
Pasta Fazule
Bean Fritters
Bean Dip
Three Bean Salad

I can’t make baked beans because we don’t have an oven. And Tempeh is out but happily we are able to purchase locally made fresh tofu just a few blocks from our house.

If you have a good bean recipe, please email it to me!
