The Mighty Bean
A comprehensive guide to selecting, cooking, and serving dozens of beans and legumes.
Beans. Affordable, full of high-value protein, with a long-lasting shelf life, beans are versatile—equally delicious in stews or salads. And now we are learning to appreciate their worth as sustainability staples. Once pushed aside by Whole30 and Plant Paradox dieters, legumes have been rediscovered by home cooks everywhere. From common classics like black and pinto to heirloom beans like Appaloosa and Dapple Greys, The Mighty Bean, written by established cookbook author Judith Choate, provides a never-ending collection of recipes to showcase these plant-based powerhouses.
Including vegetarian, vegan, and meat-friendly recipes, The Mighty Bean inspires a new outlook on legumes. Enjoy them as appetizers such as a Spicy Bean Dip, savor nourishing mains like Ayocote Negro Chili, and delight in desserts including Red Bean Cake. No matter the dish or time of day, the flexibility of beans is undeniable and, with vibrant color photography, irresistible.
