If you go to Grace on a regular basis, you’ve heard about the upcoming Hunger Challenge. The Challenge starts next week. Those of us who have accepted the challenge, in solidarity with our hungry brothers and sisters around the globe, agree to eat rice and beans every day next week. We’re going to try to do rice and beans for every meal next week. We’ll keep you posted on how it goes!
I thought I would share some ideas here on how to spice things up a bit, so stay tuned for some help if you’re taking on the challenge (for a meal, a day, or the whole week!).
In the meantime, check out some past posts that might help:
- How to cook beans in the pressure cooker + a recipe for “smashed beans”
- “Saree beans” (you’ll have to skip the bacon)
- Cuban black beans and rice
To soak or not to soak? I prefer to soak my beans, but I don’t always remember. The more I read, the more confused I get as far as nutrition goes (some people say beans should be soaked and others say it’s actually healthier not to). I try to soak them, but I don’t worry about it if I don’t have time and just pull out the pressure cooker. Soo since I’m giving you a few days’ heads up, go ahead and start soaking some beans on Sunday morning!
