Beans and Field Peas

We rated this book:


Author Sandra Gutierrez has compiled a book of more than fifty delicious recipes featuring beans and peas. Southern peas, by the way, look more like dry beans – black-eyed peas are a good example. The beans here include long green string beans as well as navy, kidney, and others.

Gutierrez educates readers on just a small sampling of the prolific varieties and multitude of flavors that beans and peas support and makes you want to try them all. Her enthusiasm is infectious, and her descriptions of her dishes are mouth-watering. The recipes are easy to follow, although a basic competence in the kitchen is assumed. But none are difficult and anyone interested in expanding their legume repertoire will have no problem with any of these recipes. Classic Southern dishes such as Hoppin’ John and Southern Caviar snuggle with New Southern dishes such as Bean Burgers (really!) with Chipotle Mayo. There is even a great section on International dishes, like Puerto Rican Rice and Pigeon Peas. With Beans and Field Peas, you can eat your fill of this amazing Southern staple and enjoy every bite!
