Earlier this week, I’d posted a recipe for an Indian Chickpea Yogurt Salad from the new cookbook by Kathy Hester: The Great Vegan Bean Book. This book is full of lots of terrific recipes using different kinds of beans in innovative and delicious combinations. When Kathy put the word out for bloggers to help her by making recipes from the book, I was sure to join in, as I’d had a chance to see how creative and interesting these are. The recipes are vegan, with accommodation for soy-free diets and other options for adjusting them to fit more specialized tastes.
It’s really the range of recipes and the variety of tastes that makes this book a great meat-free protein guide. I have one copy from the publisher to give away to a reader on this site. This is a terrific resource for anyone who would like to broaden his or her diet to include more plant-based, animal-friendly foods.
The Rules (There have to be some of these, you know.)
Eligibility: U.S. mainland residents only
To Enter: Write a comment on this post with the answer to the following question: What is your favorite bean dish? (see this post for Chef Cesare Casella’s tips on cooking beans)
You must also have a valid screen name (NOT “Anonymous”) with a corresponding email address to enter this giveaway. I’ll need to be able to click on it in order to contact the winner. If you list “Anonymous” or do not have a valid email address with your comment, you will be disqualified. I do not share these addresses with anyone, and they are only for the purpose of entering this giveaway.
Deadline: Is Tuesday, July 23, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. EDT, based upon the date/time stamp on the comments. (I’m going to be very strict about this and make no exceptions.)
The Outcome: Only one winner will be chosen for this cookbook giveaway. I’m going to put all the entries into an online Randomizer (like this one) to come up with the winner.
