Glad you liked it. It is pretty fast and easy and I love any dish that I can add a little cilantro and cumin to - next time I think I'll add a few avocado slices and a squeeze of lime.

Man, this is a garlic-heavy discussion. How about this?

1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 good-sized or 2 small apple(s), chopped, with the skin left on
a half-handful raisins, chopped (about one of those school-lunch-sized boxlets)
2 ribs celery, finely chopped
enough lemon juice to moisten te whole schmeer
sweet curry powder to taste

Best salad on earth, seriously.

I don't eat beans a lot. I'll have to try some of these.

I like making red beans & rice, could eat that for dinner. I put in my own seasonings/sauces and always use brown rice too. Man I could go for some right now!

Interesting that different things work for different people... my personal faves are black beans with brown rice.

I wasn't a big bean eater but did eat green beans and refried beans Since starting my vegetarian diet I love a lot more beans. I think because I eat them everyday now.

I do think it is best to eat a variety of beans - not just black beans (which seems to be the rage here in the U.S.)....kidney beans actually have one of the highest bean nutrition profiles....garbanzo beans, white beans, pinto beans, cannelloni beans, fresh beans (I buy delicious field beans from the Amish at my weekly visits to the farmer's markets). I love black-eyed peas (technically a legume but I use it like a bean)....there are many kinds of beans, all with a slightly different nutrition profile - so mix it up....we get the biggest range of nutrients when we eat a wide variety of foods.

I just bought this sprouted bean trio mix at Costco. Not so sure what I will make with it. Maybe soup, salads, just thought I would try it. The mix has lentils, mung, and adzuki beans.

Sprouted beans, as in live beansprouts? And: If you bought it at Costco, did you have to purchase it by the 55-gallon drum?

Cuban Black Bean Patties with Pineapple Rice

Ingredients
Rice:

• 2 cups cooked rice (without salt or butter)
• 2 teaspoons butter
• 1 cup diced pineapple
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
• 1/4 teaspoon salt

Patties:

• 2 cups rinsed, drained canned black beans (1 [15-ounce] can), divided
• 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
• 1/4 teaspoon cumin
• 1/8 teaspoon salt
• 1 large egg white
• 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded cheese, like Monterey Jack
• 1/4 cup chopped red onion
• 1/4 cup cornmeal
• Cooking spray
• 1/4 cup sour cream

Preparation
To prepare rice: Place rice in a large bowl. Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pineapple and sauté 4 minutes or just until pineapple begins to brown. Add pineapple mixture, cilantro, and 1/4 teaspoon salt to rice in bowl; cover and keep warm. Wipe pan clean with paper towels.

To prepare patties: Place 1 1/2 cups beans, garlic, cumin, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a bowl; partially mash with a fork. Place 1/2 cup remaining beans and egg white in a food processor; process 30 seconds or until well combined. Add bean puree to mashed beans in bowl, and stir until combined. Add cheese and onion to bean mixture; stir until combined. Divide bean mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Place cornmeal in a shallow dish. Dredge both sides of each patty in cornmeal.

Heat pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Spoon about 1/2 cup rice onto each of 4 plates; top each serving with 1 patty and 1 tablespoon sour cream.

Note: You can prepare the patties in advance up to the point of dredging them in cornmeal; cover and refrigerate.
