    I'm always looking for good recipes for pulses and lentils. I scored some dried Serranos a few weeks ago – a bit of a coup Down Under, so might have to give this a go Serrano style.

    So, wait, can I make this if I cooked the beans yesterday? Or do the seasonings not work out as well if you don't include them from the dry bean stage?

    Rebecca, I should've explained that in the post–thanks for reminding me! I didn't use the seasonings to cook the beans initially. I just added a bay leaf to the simmering portion of the recipe, with the onions, etc.

    debbie,
    I often add black beans (seasoned or not) to pasta, with marinara sauce and other vegetables, usually. I wonder if harry would enjoy them that way?

    Kerry, I've never added black beans to pasta! Cannellini, chick peas, lentils, yes. I'll have to give it a shot next time I make them. And your guess is as good as mine about what Harry will eat–that child is just killing me.

    Debbie, My grandson had a tough time early on and was diagnosed with “failure to thrive.” His Norwegian Great Grandma suggested we try sardines in Olive oil (Crown Prince Brand only!)and avocados. For some reason that combination appealed to him and helped him recoup some of the weight he had lost and he’s doing very well now. He liked the sardines in tomato sauce, too. Go figure.

    Thanks for all the wonderful recipes you offer. It’s great to know they’ve really been tested on real people.
