These are a few of our favourite beans

As mentioned in the previous post, I cooked 301 distinct bean recipes during 2021, and my family rated each of them out of five. There were 113 fives — and here they are 🙂

Sorry this format isn’t better — was the best I could do in a short time. When you click on the recipe name it’ll take you to my “PlanToEat” page (PlanToEat is the software I used all year to keep my recipes in order and meal plan and make grocery lists and stuff, I really like it),

and from there you can click through to the actual recipe itself.

So with no further ado, our 5/5 bean recipes from a year of bean cooking:
