Busy Day Soup

This is a savory and nourishing mix of beans to base a soup on, with flavors enhanced by onion, garlic, celery, mushroom, and carrot. The possibilities are endless. You can make your own mix of dry beans, or use a mix of canned beans as well.  If using canned, lessen the cooking time.

Barley has a chewy texture, like pasta.

Corn Chili

Chili is one of the most satisfying and filling meals, good for lunch, for dinner, and for snacks. Here's a basic, hearty chili recipe brimming with vegetables. This actually isn't hot, but you can up the spice if you prefer hotter flavors by adding hot red pepper flakes.

Ethiopian Red Lentils

This dish exemplifies how the plant-based diet can expand the standard Western palette with exotic ethnic tastes! 
 
Lovely pinkish red lentils don’t hold their shape when cooked and become thick and saucy, like a thick soup or stew. 

Cuban Black Beans, (and basic bean-cooking instructions)

A very basic bean recipe -try it with any other variety.  This is how you cook dried beans.  
 
Soaking and then draining beans reduces the undigestible sugars (oligosaccharides) that may lead to gas buildup in our lower intestines, potentially resulting in flatulence. Honestly, this lessens the more we have beans in our daily diet.  If beans are new to your diet, add them into your daily routine incrementally.
