    Default rec: more TNT bean recipes

    I forgot to change the fractions in the baked bean recipe that I
    just posted. If it doesn't come out right, give a holler. As for
    the following, I don't remember the source for the first one. I
    am really wondering about the dried mint and basil, but that is
    how I made it--probably before I had such easy access to the fresh
    versions. I believe the second one came from Time-Life Foods of
    the World, but I don't recall how much, if any, I changed it.


    Red Beans in Walnut Sauce

    Warning: This is quite garlicky! It is also not the most
    attractive-looking dish you’ll ever cook.

    1/2 c walnut pieces
    1 small onion, in hunks
    5 Tbsp pomegranate juice
    1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
    1 1/2 tsp cilantro
    1 Tbsp parsley
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 medium clove garlic
    1/4 tsp dried mint
    1/4 tsp dried basil
    1/8 tsp cayenne
    20-oz can kidney beans, rinsed and thoroughly drained
    1/2 c pomegranate seeds (opt.)

    Combine everything but beans and pomegranate seeds in blender or
    food processor and process till mixture is fairly smooth. Stir
    thoroughly into beans, being careful not to mangle them. Cover
    and chill for at least 6 hours (24 hours would be fine) before
    serving. Stir and serve sprinkled with pomegranate seeds if desired.


    Rajma-Chana Salat

    This makes a lot. Especially appropriate with Indian meals.

    20-oz can chick peas
    20-oz can red kidney beans
    10-oz package frozen black-eyed peas, cooked according to package
    directions
    1/2 c thinly sliced scallion
    3-4 Tbsp wine vinegar (probably red)
    2 Tbsp oil
    2 Tbsp chopped parsley
    2 jalapeños, seeded and finely chopped
    1 tsp salt
    1 1/2 tsp cilantro (or more)
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    juice of 1 lemon
    juice of 1 lime

    Rinse and drain all the beans. Combine all ingredients and chill
    well ere serving.

    Looks like a Georgian recipe.

    Yes. I probably should have mentioned that. I really do like
    this type of treatment.

    Slightly disappointed. When I saw TNT bean recipes I thought we
    were going to be discussing farts. Oh well.

    Thanks, that's better than an LOL. I'd love to cut a +10 fart,
    but those days are long past. The pipes are not as clear as they once
    were. The farts have to work their way around a lot of congestion -
    hardened bits of turd meat clinging over the years to the intestines -
    like the water in a creek trying to make it's way over and around a
    bunch of logs and leaves and other debri that have assembled there
    over the years. My farts are very disappointing lately. I miss the
    old days.

    The olden days of BOOM BOOM BOOM
    The rapid firing ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM
    Of rolling farts that starts near the head
    And rumble the tracks like a roller-coaster sled

    Now they're weak and they squeak
    And even the smell is a bummer
    My glorious youth so long ago peaked
    This might be my farts final summer

    I watched an old Andy Griffith show last night where a goat ate a bunch of
    dynamite. They all thought he would explode if he fell over. lol.
