Yellow Eye Beans
Are apparently related to the kidney bean. And they get their name from the way they look.
To me, the color seems to me more orange than yellow, but aside from that, I thought they tasted quite good.
I really liked these and of all the heirloom beans I’ve tried so far. Are you sold on heirloom beans yet?
And I’d definitely say that these have been some of the creamiest.
In fact, these were so good, I went and bought another bag.
And this time around, rather than use bacon, I’m gonna see if this works with liquid smoke!!!???? (it worked for my Vegan split pea soup, so hope it works for this too)
I remade this using Applewood Liquid smoke and started with 1/2 teaspoon and worked my way up to 1.5 teaspoons. You will definitely notice it with 1 teaspoon and if you are sensitive to it, that might be sufficient!
I know this is another barbecue type of recipe and it’s not summer yet, but it’s definitely a comfort food if you ask me.
A nice way to get some more beans in your diet and warm up during these cool winter months.
It goes good with white rice, with eggs, or some freshly toasted bread. Any other ideas?
Have a great week!
