    koala girl's Note:

    This is my favourite beans recipe ever, from a supermarket recipe card of all places. It's absolutely wonderful and seems to work just as well with other types of beans ie pinto or cannellini. As I'm too lazy to soak dried beans overnight, I use canned ones instead and it's still lovely - perhaps it would be even better if I followed the recipe properly and used dried beans, but I really don't think you need to.

      I just tried this recipe for New Year's Day dinner and it was really yummy! Just enough spice with the chile peppers to give it some zing and the spices complimented the beans nicely. My husband who hates any legumes and veggies actually had a second helping!

      Excellent! I halved the recipe, therefore had enough for two--ate it all and practically licked the plate. Veryfresh tasting--the lemon and coriander contrast so beautifully with the soft beans and the sweet onions. I loved this! Thanks, Koala Girl!
