Pinto Beans and Prunes (Vegan)
30 mins (cooking 30)
16 ingredients
3-4 servings
Here's a quick and easy Mediterranean-inspired dish. Pink beans, cannellini or Great Northern beans can replace the pinto beans if you prefer. Turkish apricots, dates, raisins/currants can sub for prunes, too. From the cookbook 'Bean Banquet: from Boston to Bombay. Serve over pasta, brown rice, coucous, quinoa, etc accompanied by steamed vegetable of choice (we served the beans over whole wheat couscous with a side of freshly steamed green beans) or you may prefer a simple tossed green salad. Non-vegans may enjoy the bean mixture topped with a garnish of crumbled feta...
