Legumes

Our Legume Recipes include some of the most popular legumes: Lentils, Chickpeas, and Beans. These recipes are not only delicious but healthy and easy to cook! Try our Beans and Cornbread for a one dish wonder cooked easy in a crock pot. I love cooking lentils because they don’t require any soaking time and can be easily cooked in twenty to thirty minutes. I cook lentils in sauces, soups, or casseroles. Legumes come in a variety of shapes and sizes, tastes and flavors. What is your favorite legume and how do you prepare and cook them?

Thick Vegan Black Bean Soup

FacebookPinterestStumbleUponGoogle+TumblrRedditShare

I was trying to think of a more appealing name for this soup but the name is exactly what it is, a thick black bean soup that happens to be vegan and delicious. It is also a very easy recipe that is cheap to cook up for dinner any day of the week.

Delicious Rating: This soup is full of healthy goodness that tastes great. I blended half of the pot with an immersion blender which gave it a better consistency for soup but still had some chunks of vegetables and beans. My DH & I really enjoyed it and it is great with some garlic crusty bread!

Curried Rice & Chickpeas

Curry is able to change a simple dish into something dynamic. I used to make a Coconut Rice dish with chickpeas and green peas. Delicious. I decided to mix things up by adding in some red curry paste and tomatoes…can you say, “More Delicious”? Yes, it turned my ordinary Rice & Peas dish into something extraordinary.

Delicious Rating: This is a great curry recipe. Again it is a one pot meal, which I am a big fan of because they are usually easy recipes to cook up for dinner. The leftovers got time to blend the flavors and give it more depth which made it taste even better the next day. If you aren’t a big fan of curry, leave it out along with the tomatoes leaving a great coconut rice dish.

Curried Bean Pilaf

 I am a sucker for one-pot meals. They are usually quick and easy recipes that taste great. This is a complete dish and is the star of the dinner show. Yes, you can serve it with some meat or a nice green salad too. The plus? It is a Vegan Recipe and delicious!

Delicious Rating: For a spicier meal, add more curry paste or powder. The first time around I used brown rice and since brown rice cooks a lot longer, the meal was too mushy. The second time around I used white rice and it turned out great. There is a great balance between hot from the curry, sweet from the raisins, and the perfect crunch from the pecans. Overall, it is a good meal and I plan on cooking it again!

Vegan BBQ’d Baked Beans

The best part about a Barbecue are the Baked Beans. I love the sweetness of the beans running off into the potato salad or pasta salad on the plate. Yummy! These beans may be some of the best baked beans I have ever cooked. Plus, they are Vegan!

Delicious Rating: Easy recipe to make and bake. Not too sweet at all but has a nice flavor to it. They are thick and not super saucy but if you like a lot of sauce you can double the recipe for sauce. Serve with Vegan Pasta Salad, Seitan Ribs, and Bean Burgers for a complete dish.
