I have an abundance of rice and beans in my house. I also love how versatile rice and beans can be: Indian, Mexican, African, Costa Rican, Louisianian, Japanese, and more. In March I want to see how many different recipes I can make using rice and beans, join me!
This will be a thread for everyone to post their rice and beans recipes! Also to challenge us all on how to use these simple ingredients in new ways.
Tonight I did acorn squash risotto with garbanzo beans
If anyone has pro tips on how to cook rice and beans feel free to include too.
Pro tip: if you start with dried beans and do an overnight soak with baking soda, rinsing the water a couple of times the beans can make you less gassy (or if you are using canned make sure to rinse them from the juice they are in). There is a sugar on the skin of beans that breaks down into gas in your digestive system and the baking soda can help break down this sugar before you eat it.
