courtesy of Chef Mireille of East West Realm. This is Egypt's National Dish and a popular street food. This one pot dish was new to Mireille and it's a new one to me too. Pasta, lentils, chickpeas, brown rice, tomatoes, onions and spices come together here. This is certainly one powerhouse of a meal.
entered by Janet of The Taste Space. This delicious bowl of bliss features black beans, corn, green chiles, tomatoes, cumin and corn tortillas topped with avocado. A wonderful way to use up tortillas that are nearing the end of their shelf life. Intriguing too is that the tortillas are blended inside the soup rather than used as a topping.
submitted by Mamta of Light Food Desires. This recipe is her mom's and features black chickpeas, onion, tomato, garlic and plenty of my favorite Indian spices. Just my kind of dish. Certainly a classic.
is my contribution this month. A classic Greek dish, plump gigantes are simmered in a rich and zesty tomato sauce, along with some dried herbs and paprika. This is a new favorite in my kitchen.
shared by Terry of Crumpets & co. I couldn't resist these little bites made up of chickpeas, cauliflower, chia seeds, oats and some curry powder. These patties that are quickly fried so they are crispy on the outside but soft inside are certainly packed with nutrition.
shared by Siri of Cooking With Siri. A delightful, easy healthy dish, black-eyed peas shine here simmered with black tea leaves, ginger, garlic, chilies and spices. Black-eyed peas are commonly thought to bring good luck if eaten on New Years, and for certain they are a lovely earthy and healthy legume.
made by Tayna of Easy and Simple Foods. Channa comes together here with rice, tomato, onion, garlic, chilies, ginger and spices. This was served with an onion raitha making it a complete and tasty meal. It's easy and straight forward to prepare too.
And now for the winner of both the Hurst bean prize and Susan's gift. Congratulations to Mireille of East West Realm.
