221Re: Proper type of beans?
- Jun 13, 2009Hey all from Anne-Marie
I usuall stick with beans like fava, garbanzos, etc (which aren't actually
beans of course :-), being members of the pea genus Pisum) or I'll use black
eyed peas (Vigna unguiculata). Beans like kidney beas, etc are Phaseolus
My reasoning for that is that peasant painting "the bean eater" where he's
eating a big bowl of what looks EXACTLY like black eyed peas. I don't know
for sure that they're the same, but they are the same size and shape and
color. And they were common enough for a peasant to eat them, which tells me
they weren't a huge fancy luxury item.
Yum! The bean salad with the black eyed peas from Rumpolt (IIRC?) that is
awful tasty :-)
