“Look after the root of the tree, and the fragrant flower and luscious fruits will grow by themselves. Look after the health of the body, and the fragrance of the mind and richness of the spirit will follow." -B.K.S. Iyengar
Aren't these beans so pretty? It looks almost as if their little eyes were painted on them individually with a tiny paint brush. I picked them up at a co-op recently as I've seen black-eyed peas before, but I had never seen yellow-eyed ones, and I figured I had to try them.
Being able to try unique types of beans is just one reason why I cook with dried beans over canned beans. For more reasons why I prefer dried over canned and how to properly cook dried beans, see a previous post on beans here.
