Delicious and easy bean dishes

It has long been something we have not addressed such a valuable and tasty product, as beans. in our recipes. And so today we have a delicious and simple bean dishes . Where we will touch on a little bit of beans as such, and in particular touch preparation of several delicious dishes.

Delicious and easy bean dishes made simple. And the main requirement for the food — the correct preparation and cleaning of the beans. Preliminary preparation of bean depends on what beans you are using. So, bean is green and normal. Beans younger, so you will need to cook less time. Whereas the usual dry beans requires either

a) soak at least 5 hours and cooking until tender;

b) cooking until tender (an hour to two depending on the bean).

It is important to know an interesting fact: raw beans should not be eaten. It must cook: to stew or boil. In raw beans contain a poisonous substance that is destroyed when cooked. Therefore, you should not eat the raw pods and beans.

By the way, interesting fact: the word “beans” has very ancient origins. It is almost in an unchanged form come down to us from those ancient times when only Sredizemnomorja was settled by our ancestors-Indo-Europeans. Who know about beans (and about how her name is) from locals, then dissolved among our ancestors. And left the memory of himself only a few words. One of which is the beans.

Ukrainian dishes from Aeneid I. Kotlyarevsky

Ukrainian dishes from the Aeneid by Kotlyarevsky — original and interesting. But before that a few words about the artwork itself. The genre is burlesque. Burlesque (FR. burlesque, from Italian. burla — a joke) — kind of comic poetry that emerged in the Renaissance in connection with the overall development of burlesque poetry. The funny side of burlesque is based on the fact that serious maintenance is expressed to him inappropriate images and stylistic means, and the “exalted heroes” classic antique or neoclassical (sometimes medieval) literature are “disguised” in clownish attire alien to them. Here another kind of burlesque — travesty (i.e. re-dressing).

So, finished with the entry, we go strictly to the dishes (not everyone, of course, from the book — but the most potential from my point of view).

Chile con carne (Chile with meat)

Continue to the section “Recipes” a wonderful dish with meat and beans — chili con carne (chili with meat) . Wonderful dish, hearty, tasty, and most importantly, very easy to cook. We ourselves have tried and recommend.

Chili con carne — Chile with meat, interesting dish that belongs to Mexican cuisine. Thanks a chili pepper in its composition can be very, very sharp.
