Did you know that beans are the most concentrated source of plant-based protein in the world? But how much can you really do with beans? The answer is quite a lot, as proven by Crescent Dragonwagon in her new book: Bean By Bean: A Cookbook. Dragonwagon covers everything from familiar favorites such as chickpeas and pintos to heirloom varieties such as rattlesnake beans and teparies (tep-uh-rees). Bean By Bean features more than 175 delicious, step-by-step recipes that range from breakfast and lunch to dinner and dessert, featuring tasty dishes such as Neo-Traditional Falafels, Three Sisters Salad with Fresh Corn and Zucchini Ribbons, and Classic Huevos Rancheros con Frijoles. Bean By Bean: A Cookbook is in stores and online for $16 and is a great way to go above and beyond your classic bean soup.
