I'm looking to do some Asian cooking over the holidays and need a recommendation for a grocery store that carries Thai and Chinese ingredients. Something more than Whole Foods. Preferably near Raleigh/5 Points
Cooked dried black beans provide the wow factor in this simple dip; you could serve the blended beans alone and guests would swoon over the rich, full-bodied flavor. Use leftover dip as a spread for sandwiches or burritos, or stir into a bean soup.
This Creole classic was actually designed for the dried kidney bean—an inexpensive staple that could simmer away while Monday’s wash gets done, with a hunk of pork or sausage from Sunday night’s supper.
