I prefer frijioles negros (black beans), how about you?

My favorite bean of all is the frijole negros (black bean). Oh, sure the Pinto is the meaty bean of the legume world, but I think the black bean has the most taste AND it is rich in iron.

Some folks love green peas - me too!

I went to our local grocery store and was able to buy 21 different kinds of dried beans (including peas, of course). Fabulous. I love beans. If I was to be stranded on an island and had to pick one food, it would be beans.

So, what is your favorite bean and why?

Now is your chance to let your voice be heard

Pretty much all - but you missed black-eyed peas. And they grow like weeds here!

Look, just because you get the farts something awful doesn't mean you have to cause such a stink.

Black beans, as they are or refried. Delish.

Lentil beans combined with garlic, oil, spinach, pepper, and pasta creates a wonderful soup with outstanding nutritional qualities.

For my fellow bean loving friends, have a look at the thread I posted about how to make bean burgers. It is really neat. http://bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=305747

All you need is dry beans, flavoring, and frying oil. Check it out!

Ya, man, I am with you on that one. I like black-eyed peas with collard greens. The bitter of the greens seems just right with those sandy black-eyed peas. I can't explain it, but I love it. Yes, I like the vinegar touch too. Good suggestion.

Hey, how do you prepare your azuki beans? Sweat like the Japanese do it?

Great one. Now, add some lima beans, leave the soup out of it and you have a hearty dish that will have your kids coming home for supper.

Does any one like to get some crackers, beat them to a pulp, cut them up into little pieces - and then add them to a boiling pot of vegetable soup? hmmmm yum.. I like to add some fava beans and rinse it down with a generous glass of chianti. . hf-hf-hf-hf-hf-hf-hf-hfff.

Big 'ol plump lima beans. Usually there's a relationship between size and taste in the vegetable world, and that is smaller=tastier. Not so with lima beans IMHO. How sublime.

I usually make my azuki beans sweet; I like Japanese cooking and will stick with a theme throughout the meal.
I've also used them as a substitute for lintels.
