I don’t have a picture for this post because I messed up the soba noodles and they were a sticky, goopy mess. Despite this, the sesame soba dish was delicious!
A little while ago I tried this no-soak recipe for black beans. I cooked them for HOURS but they never seemed to really soften. Where the organic beans I bought from from the hippy food co-op super old? Do they really need to be soaked, despite the serious research by the fellows at Serious Eats? Where did things go wrong?
The problem, it turned out, was the orange added to the beans during the initial cooking phase. This made my water too acidic and the beans stayed hard, no matter how long they cooked. Solution: baking soda. I added a bit (maybe 1/2 tsp) and they softened very quickly. For next time: don’t add orange until beans are already soft.
I should first say that I’ve never before made vegan chili. But I now know I never need to try another recipe.
This is so easy I can’t believe I’m writing it. But let’s be honest, sometimes you need to cook something for lunch (or dinner) that is super easy.
Peaches were on sale at the market recently, so peach hand pies weren’t far behind.
This was definitely a recipe I should have thought about longer before starting. A naptime project shouldn’t involve multiple “chill 30 minutes” steps. But I chopped the strawberries and frozen some oil the night before, so it felt like it was too late to back out.
