Review: 'Bean by Bean' by Crescent Dragonwagon

Bean by Bean by Crescent Dragonwagon, 2011, Workman, $15.95, softbound, 370 pages. Category/Genre: cooking. Cover: catches your interest. Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million. 

Dragonwagon begins with the basics of beans, which goes over selecting, preparing, cooking, and storing shell beans, dehydrated beans, canned beans, fresh beans, and dried beans, as well as de-gassifying beans.

There's a chapter on starters, which includes dips, nibbles, and spreads. There are soups, salads, and chilis; stews, curries, bakes, casseroles, and stir-fries. Oddly, there's even a chapter on desserts. 

If you like this one, try: One-Dish Vegan, by Robin Robertson.
