Beans, Beans, and More Beans
I posted on Google+ earlier today that I’m “Doing my bi-weekly bean cooking. First batch: Orange Lentils. Second batch: Black Beans. Will write a blog post later.” Well, here’s the blog post. And, to my friend Vincent, yes, you’re probably right… “hmmm.. wouldn’t that increase your carbon footprint?” I did two batches of beans that I’ll be freezing and eating for the next 2 weeks or so. First, a batch of Orange Lentils (seasoned of course), and second, a simple batch of Black Beans - plain. Tumeric Orange Lentils I added about 400mL of Lentils, and about 2 times that of water. Tumeric powder, Chinese Five Spice, Coriander powder, Cumin powder, black pepper, and tons of garlic.This batch will give me enough for 18 meals! Boring Black Beans These are exactly that - boring, but flexibly useful. Dried, and then frozen, these should last about 2 weeks.
