A classic tradition for Thanksgiving day. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com.
Although it may sound like an odd combination of foods, at least it did to me at first, it is a tasty and hearty salad. You may want to alter the dressing and onion amounts to your taste.
This hearty vegetarian chili includes roasted sweet potatoes and black beans, along with spicy, flavorful seasonings such as chili powder, jalapenos, and cocoa powder.
Half of the black beans in this spicy soup are pureed with tomatoes, the other half are simmered with carrots, onion and kernels of corn.
Instead of starting with a hambone (which you won’t have unless you’ve just eaten a baked ham) and dried beans (which require significant soaking and simmering time), simply open cans of chicken broth and beans. Minced prosciutto instantly transforms commercial chicken broth into a ham-flavored soup base. Italian sausage reinforces the pork flavor and makes the soup substantial and satisfying. Mashing some of the canned beans thickens the soup and gives it the body of one that’s been long simmered. Sauteed onions, carrots and celery add depth of flavor and ensure the soup’s homemade feel.
Cold black bean salad with a bite! It makes a great side dish for any Mexican or Southwestern dish. This recipe has become a healthy favorite in our family. Adjust the amount of serrano pepper to suit your spice tolerance.
This white bean rarebit cheese sauce is the perfect comfort food to serve over buttered toast.
The iconic green bean casserole is reworked with the flavors of French onion soup — caramelized onions and Gruyere cheese.
Beans baked the old-fashioned way — in a bean hole! These are full of the authentic baked beans flavors of molasses and salt pork. Great for big outdoor gatherings.
