Royal Burgundy Bush Bean
I purchased these seeds from Abbodanza Organic Seeds this Spring. Wow, I had no idea they were going to be so delicious and gigantic! You don't need to mess around with building any trellis or support for them either, and they seem to be pest proof (of course, I could go out there tomorrow and find an infestation, knock on wood).
They are wonderful raw of course, but if you end up with a surplus, you can make a yummy Coconut Curry dish.
Coconut Basil Vegetable Curry
1 can Coconut milk
handful of Basil
Veggies, chopped (I like whatever is in season from Eggplant to Squash, Carrots, Beans, Kale, Mushrooms, etc.)
Curry of some sort (I like Green, but you can use dried powder, or make your own)
Sweetener such as Agave or Brown Sugar
Basmati Rice, cooked
Saute ginger in oil for a bit. Add Veggies and saute until almost tender. Add Fish Sauce and Curry, coating well. Add Coconut Milk, simmer until done. Season to taste with sweetener or more Salt. Serve with Rice.
There are endless ways to improvise on this recipe!
