‘Bean Counter’ Series

‘Great Sauces Transform Good Food into Gourmet’ 

Case for beans

Although not an accountant by profession, I am a bean counter. I maintain a mixed variety case of beans in my pantry at all times; kidneys, cannellinis, garbanzos, pintos, blacks and great white northerns. Add to those, sacked dry varieties mostly in one or two pounder bags. If my place was a little more spacious I’d have even more types hanging around, like black-eyeds, limas, pinks and cranberries.

Beans are loaded with protein, vitamin B, potassium and fiber. They’re a good food source for vegetarian and vegan preferences. They absorb a myriad of flavors. Textures range from whole to partially smashed to creamy purees.

So many ways to love these little bobbles; in savory soups like Italian White Bean and Ham Soup, hearty stews like Brunswick Stew, healthy salads like Taco Salad with Tomatillo Sauce and creamy dips Hummus and Cannellini Hummus. Beans grace tables around the world, often daily and commonly complemented with rice. Taking the international lead, I’m enjoying varied seasonings, spices, vegetables and herbs, increasingly serving more beans and sharing more bean recipes.

Here’s a globe-hopping selection of bean dishes: Mexico – Frijoles Refritos, Frijoles Charros and Frijoles Negros, Brazil – Feijoada and Feijao Com Leite de Coco, Chile – Porotos Granados, Colombia – Frijoles Rojas, Peru – Tacu-Tacu, Venezuela – Arepa de Pabellon, France – Cassoulet, Italy – Minestrone and Tuscan Ribollita, Spain – Fabada and White Bean Tapas, Greece – Gigantes, Egypt – Fuul Medames, India – Rajma and Rajma Chawal, Cuba – Arroz con Frijoles Negros, Puerto Rico – Habichuelas, USA – Succotash, Boston Baked Beans, Louisiana Red Beans and Rice, Bean and Bacon Soup.

For my series I choose a red, white and black trio of dishes. More about beans here, here and here.

Share highlights of the day with each other, laugh and giggle, and soak in the pleasant weather. Make the switch from the typical fried chicken and potato salad.

3 French Green Beans – Prepare a medium bowl Green Beans in ice waterof ice water with 1/2 tablespoon salt. Bring to boil 2 quarts of water with remaining 1/2 tablespoon of salt.

Add 2 quarters of a hard boiled egg and 3 olives to each jar. Place half can of drained tuna on the top and seal with lid.

Nicoise with salmonInformation
Cannellinis are very creamy textured beans, an especially good choice for salad in a jar.

French green beans, sometimes called haricot verts, are skinny compared to regular beans. To clean, wash and cut off the vine end of each bean.

Use leftover grilled salmon broken in chunks on the top of the jar instead of tuna.

This could also make eight 1 cup jars or containers.

To make a salad, combine the cannellini beans, corn, green beans and red onions in one bowl and marinate for 30 minutes. Add tomato wedges, diced salami, olives and tuna. Garnish with egg wedges.

To make ahead, marinate beans, corn and green beans overnight. Boil the eggs and keep refrigerated overnight. The next day, layer ingredients in jars.

Dish Designer

  • Exchange French for regular green beans.
  • Exchange hard salami for Genoa salami.
  • Exchange kalamata for green, stuffed or dry cured olives.
  • Exchange tuna for grilled salmon.
