Product Description

About the Author

Before turning her attention to bean cooking, Trish Ross enjoyed a successful career as a Special Education Teacher and an Adult Educator. Since the early nineties, Trish has studied and researched the world of beans from prepartion and nutritional aspects to exploring unique recipes from around the world. What a dramatic change in the world of beans since Easy Beans was first published in 1995. With the ongoing research into healthy diets and lifestyles there is an even greater emphasis on beans as an important food source. Trish has continued to research the nutritional aspects of beans and test new recipes. Time to publish a new edition, share her new recipes and provide the nutritional analysis for each recipe. Thus the second edition of Easy Beans. Trish is a "bean missionary" and is delighted that more and more people are turning to bean cookery.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressed 11 Jan 2013
By Faith
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was really expecting great things from this book, but was really disappointed, it's basic, boring and bad recipes full of shop bought items rather than cooking things from scratch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beans in California 16 Jan 2001
By A Customer - Published on
I have a bookcase full of cookery books, BUT, "Easy Beans" and "More Easy Beans" are two of my top favorites. All the recipes I have tried are delicious, and best of all for a busy professional, quick and easy to make when I come home tired at the end of the day. As an MD interested in nutrition, I can heartily recommend the recipes in these books for the good of your heart. Well done, authors!

5.0 out of 5 stars EASY BEANS - The best bean/pea/lentil cookbook ever! 13 Jan 2001
By Kim Gillis - Published on
This wonderful book took all the mystery out of cooking with all types of beans, peas and lentils. The recipes are versatile, nutritious and extremely simple to prepare. The authors' blurb at the beginning of each recipe is informative and quite often humourous. The Leek & Lentil Soup (page 28) has now become a weekly favourite of both my family and co-workers!! And as a final added bonus, the binding lies flat on the counter for easy reading while cooking. What more could a busy chef ask for?!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Bean Recipes 26 May 2008
By candlewriter - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A simple little book, no frills or pictures, but surprisingly useful. Divided into four main categories--soups, salads, entrees, and sides--each recipe features beans, peas, and/or lentils. Many of the recipes are vegetarian/vegan, as well as some good recipes incorporating meat. The recipes aren't fancy or gourmet, but they're easy to prepare, healthy, and above all, quite tasty. If the book had pictures and a few exciting/unusual recipes for balance, I would give it five stars. Recommended for:
--beginning cooks
--busy/time-pressed cooks
--anyone wanting or needing to incorporate more legumes into their diet

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best bean cookbooks 27 Jan 2007
By James J., Conley - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lots of good tasting recipes that really are easy to prepare. Each recipe has a small chart identifying protein, fat, carbohydrates, calories and fiber content per serving.

The best tasting recipes all seem to begin with sauteing onions and garlic then adding the rest of the recipe. This is a great way to make tasty bean recipes.

Pressure cooking may be the best and fastest way to cook beans, where beans don't have to be soaked and salt and other acidic ingredients can be added during cooking which greatly enhances the flavor. Pressure cooked beans are so much tastier than canned or slow cooked beans it's a shame pressure cooking isn't included. [...].

If you like chili powder & green bell peppers you will like the main courses in this book. If you do not, I would find another cookbook.
