Interesting little research paper. You can go to the source article or download the research here: PLANT BASED COPY.
Mega-Trend? Time will tell.
Sugar & Butter (to coat spring form pan)
1 1/4 sticks butter
½ Cup Sugar (divided ¼ cups)
8 oz. Semisweet Chocolate
4 oz. Milk Chocolate
1 Tsp. Vanilla
4 Large Eggs Separated
¼ Tsp. Salt
This recipe came from the old Gourmet magazine. According to The NY Times the magazine ceased publication in 2009. So this recipe is old and The Boss has been making this chocolate wonder for years. Expect compliments because it’s that good.
Sopa de Frijol con Vegetal
1/2 pound dried pinto beans
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon dried oregano (Mexican variety preferred), crumbled
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic (medium), finely chopped
1 can tomatoes, fine dice
2 teaspoons chili powder
1. Pick over the beans carefully and remove any foreign particles. Put the beans in a strainer and rinse under cold running water. Put the beans, bay leaf, oregano, and cumin in a large saucepan with water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the beans are tender and the liquid thickens, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Do not let the beans boil dry. Check the water level during cooking and add hot water, when needed, about 1/4 cup at a time. There should always be about 1/2 inch of water above the level of the beans.
2. Meanwhile, heat the oil over medium heat in a medium skillet and cook the onion, stirring, until it browns, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, tomatoes, and ground chili. Cook, stirring, until the tomato juices evaporate, 2 to 3 minutes. When the beans are tender, add the onion mixture to the beans. Add salt, and continue cooking for about 20 minutes to blend flavors. Remove the bay leaf, and serve hot.

I love pinto beans and found this recipe a long time ago. When the offspring were little I didn’t fix beans at home. I got my bean fix when we went out for Tex-Mex and gorged myself on the refried variety. Nowadays as an Aging Wonder I tend to eat a lot healthier than during my younger days. Give me a good bowl of beans and I’m a happy camper.
Check back for updates and tips on this soup recipe. I’ve got beans on the stove and I am absolutely positive I no longer follow the recipe as written.
Eating a variety of unprocessed fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes is key when it comes to maintaining a healthy, balanced diet.
Although high intakes of red and processed meats may increase risk of major diseases, a healthy, balanced, plant-based diet can still include small amounts of lean meat trimmed of visible fat (particularly unprocessed white meat) and reduced-fat dairy products.
Sounds a lot like Chinese food if you ask me.
Let me think about this.
Like I’ve always said, sushi would be fine if you cooked it.
“You need to put the breakfast casserole on the blog. Everyone at the office loved it.”
“OK. Where do I find it?”
“It’s a Trisha Yearwood recipe. But I changed a few things.”
In today’s world of instant information the recipe wasn’t hard to find. After confirming with The Boss that the recipe I found was the one she used, I started writing. But my eyes caught the following:
Recipe adapted from Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen with Trisha Yearwood (c) Clarkson Potter 2008
If I understand this correctly the recipe here is an adaptation of an adaptation of Yearwood’s original 2008 version.
So with all of these credits it’s likely I won’t get slammed for a lack of attribution like I did when I published a slightly altered version of someone’s Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe.
Pepper? Definitely add some black pepper. We used Potter sausage a fine MIO product which IMHO is some of the best pork sausage on the market. Very good ratio of fat to flesh. For the bread, use a thick slice bread in the Texas Toast style. This size helps to create the perfect size bread cubes. Yes, I also noticed that this recipe and the original do not specify how much butter. (psst…this is not a low-fat low-calorie vegan dish so how much butter do you think?) Don’t ask me why two different Cheddar cheeses because I don’t know.
I’ll go out on a limb and predict this dish will be Daughter-in-law Approved. Anything you can toss together the night before and bake in the morning is a life saver when you have a Tiny Human on board. Plenty of leftovers too.
