Every time this year, we seem to fall in love with beans all over again. Creamy cannellini beans, rich and hearty pinto beans, delicate flageolets: they turn any dish into a satisfying meal. Here are some of our favorite recipes, perfect for right now.We highly recommend buying bags of dried beans and making them yourself. It's easy to do in the oven or the slow-cooker. We love Rancho Gordo's heirloom beans, but even a basic bag of dried beans from the grocery store will taste fantastic.
