4 Great Vegetarian Bean Recipes

I adore beans.

Just lust after beans.

Black, garbanzo, pinto, red, you name it. They’re inexpensive, filling, and they make me realize healthy and delicious are not mutually exclusive.

Here are the four bean recipes I love most:

    Thank you so much for these chickpea friendly recipes!
    I went vegetarian over a year ago, and I don’t miss meat, in fact I am in love with every legume I have had the pleasure of meeting (and eating!). New ways to enjoy my little friends are always welcome. Thanks Andie.
    I can’t wait to try the falafel and the black bean enchiladas! Yummy :)

    I made your chili last week (w/out beef) and I LOVED it. Healthy comfort food that fills me up is the best. Those burgers look gooooooood….think I’ll try those this week.

    These all look so good– I’m all about adapting meat-based recipes for my veggie lifestyle, but it’s also nice when no adaptation is needed. Thanks for making my mouth water for falafel at 10 am :)

    My 60 yo mom has a beautiful skin. She attributes it to tofu and other bean based dishes she enjoys to make and eat. I’m gonna send your recipes to my mom. Thank you for sharing them.

    I have been bitten by the get fit and healthy bug and I was just searching desperately for new ideas to beans. I want to get more protein from beans, but have never really found ways to enjoy them. Well NOW I HAVE!! I’m really excited about trying your recipes. They look amazing.
