Review

'Easy beans, the best bean cookbook has a wide variety of bean dishes that are easy to prepare and tasty.' -- Bob Spear, Heartland Reviews, March 2005 *****

Here's a question for you: Aside from the barbecue, what is the most plentiful consumable at a cook-off - beer or beans?

I'm not sure which one it is, but right now let's talk about beans. Almost every book on barbecue includes recipes for beans, but until now I'd not come across a book that focused solely on the beans. Now there is "Easy Beans: Fast and Delicious Bean, Pea and Lentil Recipes" by Trish Ross ($12.95, Big Bean Publishing, 146 pp.), which is as outstanding a collection of beans information as I think anyone will find. Ross offers chapters of recipes on Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Main Dishes and Vegetables and Side Dishes; over 100 in all. Plus she adds plenty of other useful information, such as a nutritional chart, discussion on the different types of beans and preparation tips and techniques. All in all, this is a book you'll want to have on your bookshelf. --Doug Mosley from the National Barbecue News, Douglas, GA

Customer Reviews

It has easy to follow recipes.
Dr. C. Archer
Many of the recipes are vegetarian/vegan, as well as some good recipes incorporating meat.
candlewriter
I don't give it 5 stars because some of the recipes are a bit repetitive.

I have a bookcase full of cookery books, BUT, "Easy Beans" and "More Easy Beans" are two of my top favorites. All the recipes I have tried are delicious, and best of all for a busy professional, quick and easy to make when I come home tired at the end of the day. As an MD interested in nutrition, I can heartily recommend the recipes in these books for the good of your heart. Well done, authors!

This wonderful book took all the mystery out of cooking with all types of beans, peas and lentils. The recipes are versatile, nutritious and extremely simple to prepare. The authors' blurb at the beginning of each recipe is informative and quite often humourous. The Leek & Lentil Soup (page 28) has now become a weekly favourite of both my family and co-workers!! And as a final added bonus, the binding lies flat on the counter for easy reading while cooking. What more could a busy chef ask for?!

A simple little book, no frills or pictures, but surprisingly useful. Divided into four main categories--soups, salads, entrees, and sides--each recipe features beans, peas, and/or lentils. Many of the recipes are vegetarian/vegan, as well as some good recipes incorporating meat. The recipes aren't fancy or gourmet, but they're easy to prepare, healthy, and above all, quite tasty. If the book had pictures and a few exciting/unusual recipes for balance, I would give it five stars. Recommended for:
--beginning cooks
--busy/time-pressed cooks
--anyone wanting or needing to incorporate more legumes into their diet

Lots of good tasting recipes that really are easy to prepare. Each recipe has a small chart identifying protein, fat, carbohydrates, calories and fiber content per serving.

The best tasting recipes all seem to begin with sauteing onions and garlic then adding the rest of the recipe. This is a great way to make tasty bean recipes.

Pressure cooking may be the best and fastest way to cook beans, where beans don't have to be soaked and salt and other acidic ingredients can be added during cooking which greatly enhances the flavor. Pressure cooked beans are so much tastier than canned or slow cooked beans it's a shame pressure cooking isn't included. [...].

If you like chili powder & green bell peppers you will like the main courses in this book. If you do not, I would find another cookbook.

I love beans but I didnt know how to cook them.I couldnt believe how easy it is to prepare them until I read this book. The section "Getting Started" explains everything simply. I had never heard of the quick soak---talk about FAST or you can use a can instead of starting from scratch which is great for when I get home from work. I recommend the MOROCCAN CHICKEN on page 75. It has been the hit of more college potlucks. Lots of recipes for vegetarians and the authors obviously love black beans---lots of recipes for them.
