Vegetarian recipes and info
by Laura K. Lawless
Beans are an important source of vegetarian protein. Lucky for us, they are also versatile and delicious! Take a look at this list of different ways to enjoy beans in soups, salads, veggie burgers, and more.
Remember that most dried beans, which are cheaper and tastier than canned beans, need to be soaked before cooking. And if you just don’t have time for that, the beans in most recipes can be replaced by lentils.
White beans and black olives combine with various herbs and veggies to make a hearty soup.
You can either make these burritos yourself or put the ingredients on the table and let everyone build their own.
When you cook your own beans, they are one of the healthiest things out there, and they are delicious with just a pinch of salt. They are also wonderful paired with feta and toasted walnuts, as in this simple bean salad.
Black beans, zucchini, and a bit of cheese sandwiched between two tortillas – this may be the best quesadilla you’ve ever tasted.
Fried rice is an easy, versatile, and quick vegetarian recipe. In fact, the hardest part is remembering to make the rice at least several hours beforehand, so that it has time to chill.
Gallo pinto, literally “spotted rooster,” is ubiquitous in Costa Rica and Nicaragua. It refers to black beans and rice cooked together, and is served at every meal, surrounded by various side dishes. It’s easy to make and very healthy.
