I'm trying to eat more vegetarian based dishes and am looking for recipes for bean dishes- although I'm not a pure vegetarian. I'm hispanic and live in Miami so I already know the basic spanish style black or red bean dishes. And I make chilli and minestrone on a regular basis. I'm looking for something beyond these old stand bys - and am open to any type of bean. I use both dried and canned - depending on the time I have - so either will work for me.
