    that frittata looks great! I got a 12 in cask iron for christmas so I've been waiting to make one. I made a leek quiche with it and it was tdf.

    I finished off the last of my pig's foot lentil soup last night, so I made a big batch of chicken soup. I love winter only insofar that you can eat soup all day everyday.

    yesterday i had homemade blueberry coffee cake for breakfast.

    killer thick, crusty whole grain bread grilled cheese with tomatoes and tomato soup with a honey crisp apple and freshly ground honey roasted peanut butter for lunch.

    and spinach stuffed shells (the pasta was homemade and i'll never use store-bought shells again) with salad, garlic bread, and garlic sauteed yellow squash for dinner. tasted amazing, especially since i had just finished riding rollers and going for a snow run so i was starving by the time the pasta was baked.

    chocolate milkshake with sprinkles and a cherry on top for dessert.

    it took some foraging to get food since the power was out at whole foods, but it was totally worth the snow hike to be that well fed. best snow day ever

    i had some more of the whole grain bread with peanut butter for breakfast today, and had a tomato, fresh mozzarella, homemade pesto (super garlicky, just how i like it!), and mixed greens sandwich and a grapefruit for lunch today. will probably have some of the butternut curry soup i made the other day over some quinoa for dinner.

    i've really been enjoying cooking again, and my belly is going to go into a good food coma.

    Dora, dried beans are even cheaper than canned beans, and you don't have to worry about having those pesky cans in your recycling. Also, dried beans cook up more delish, and give you a good stock (esp. chickpeas) that you can put into other dishes, making them also taste awesome.

    Pro tip: Try to freecycle yourself a little crockpot. Then you can cook them slowly all day while you're at work and have ready-to-go beans when you get home.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    you guys are totally right, dried are definitely better than canned and you can make them taste like things. but i just so happened to have a surplus of canned beans. every time i go to my parent's house they load my trunk with beans and pasta sauce and bagels. thank you for the suggestions though!

    this is a little off topic but do you have to soak dried beans overnight before you cook em? or can you just cook them? i always soak them but i think they'd soak up more flavor if you cooked them in tasty broth without soaking them

    mrowtown - oops! reading comprehension fail on my part

    you can do it without soaking, but it takes a LOT longer to cook. why not soak them in tasty broth? although you are supposed to rinse off the water they soaked in and use fresh to cook it.
    • CommentAuthorcindierock
    • CommentTimeJan 14th 2011
     
    you do not need to soak them if you put them in a crockpot/slow cooker thing... just put in the tasty broth + some water in the crock pot with the dried beans and put it on low forever

    It is said that some beans have toxins in them that are removed by soaking and that that's why they're traditionally soaked. Because of that, you wouldn't want to drink the soak water/broth. I don't remember which off the top of my head, but I always soak mine, rinse, and cook them in fresh water.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    phytic acid!

    soy beans need fermentation (tempeh) or precipitation (bean curd/tofu) to remove phytic acid, though. apparently it's in there good and doesn't want to come out easily. pretty sure this means that soy milk has a good amount of phytic acid in it.

    phytic acid inhibits the uptake of iron, calcium, and other important nutrients.

    if you don't soak yer beans and then cook with fresh water but consume the beans with dairy or red meat, it counteracts the negative effects of phytic acid. if you don't eat that stuff, you're supposed to soak and then use fresh water to cook with. vegans take note.

    edit: the "whey" that tofu is packed in is what the phytic acid stays in when the "curd" precipitates out. i don't know why you would use it, but, uh. yeah. don't drink that stuff.

    Yeah, best to soak most beans beforehand. You can do a quick soak by bringing the water to a boil and then turning off the heat & letting the beans sit for 30+min, then putting in fresh water or broth for cooking.Troglodytarum is latin for troll

    soaking is much preferred, the beans cook much more evenly and the soup/dish will taste fresher and cleaner.

    I don't know for weirdo chemicals, but the best reason to soak beans is simply to get the dirt/dust/etc off. Beyond that, I've heard no compelling, non-pseudoscientific reason for soaking.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    a pasta maker would certainly be easier than going at a wad of dough aggressively with a rolling pin. but not at all necessary. you just roll it as thin as you want/until you get fed up. then you take the sheet of dough, roll it into a log, and slice it up. you end up with something akin to mini cinnamon buns of pasta. then you pretend it's new years eve and the clock just hit midnight, grab the ends of each little roll, and fling them around until they're all undone and in strips. at this point you throw the wad of them into boiling water until it floats. ta-daaa! drain, enjoy.
