black turtle beans
I purchased some lovely black turtle beans from Breslin Farms (Ottawa, IL), and have had somewhat of a love affair with rice and beans since. These beans are incredibly tender and toothsome, cooking up beautifully (with coriander, cayenne, cumin and chicken stock). Paired with Spanish rice, sautéed zucchini and topepd with an egg and cilantro, this was important comfort food during a month of working more than I'd like to admit.
