Lobio (Georgian bean dish)

BobB | Nov 16, 201009:39 AM     7

I was introduced to this Georgian (that's Georgia as in Tbilisi, not Atlanta) dish at a dinner party last weekend and became an instant fan. It's basically red beans prepared with minced onions & herbs, but from the quick research I've done on it, apparently it can go in either of two directions - sweet, like the one I had, which contained chopped nuts and pomegranate, or savory, with garlic, vinegar, and (optionally?) crumbled feta cheese.

I'm looking forward to trying the sweet version as a side dish with my slow-smoked baby backs, and the savory version strikes me as a great main course when I have vegetarian guests.

Any other fans out here? Any favorite recipes?
