Bebop Hotpot

a taste sensation

 

Turtle Beans are black, shiny and kidney shaped with a slight
rectangular look. They have a slight mushroom flavor, hold their shape
when cooked and absorb flavors well.

In this dish black turtle beans are simmered to perfection with fresh
corn in a classic Creole combination. The dish is perfectly balanced
with the spiciness of spanish paprika, cayenne pepper and the freshness
of mint.

 

Nutrition

Black beans are loaded with folate (folic acid), manganese, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and vitamin B1. Black beans are also an excellent source of protein, including an amino acid called tryptophan. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that is helpful for promoting restful sleep and preventing depression.

Corn: Ferulic acid, a phytochemical, is unique in that it is found in very low amounts in fruits and vegetables, but is found in very high levels in corn in its bound form. Cooking the sweet corn results in the amount of ferulic acid increasing a lot.

For centuries, mint has been enjoyed for its wonderful aroma, its great taste, and its healing power. Long known for its ability to settle a nervous stomach.

Salad Concerto

Black Turtle beans with pineapple and umeboshi vinegar

Pineapples have a vibrant tropical flavor that balances the tastes of sweet and tart, a sensational combination with black turtle beans, the crunchy texture of red and green peppers and a tangy umeboshi vinegar giving everything a nice zip.

 

Nutrition

Black beans are loaded with folate (folic acid), manganese, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and vitamin B1.

Fresh pineapple is rich in bromelain, a group of sulfur-containing proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzymes that not only aid digestion, but can effectively reduce inflammation and swelling helping with arthritis and gout, and speeding recovery from injuries and surgery. (Since it is deactivated by heat, pineapple juice and canned pineapple are not good sources of this health-promoting enzyme) Pineapple also contains Vitamin C the body's primary water-soluble antioxidant.

Peppers contain vitamin C, A, B6 and folic acid. Red peppers are one of the few foods that contain lycopene, a carotenoid whose consumption has been inversely correlated with cancer.

Umeboshi Vinegar amino acids help counter the effects of lactic-acid buildup in the blood, which can cause fatigue; irritability; stiff, sore muscles; and can contribute to disease.

Blackstrap molasses is another aid to digestion as it contains betaine hydrochloride. This helps digest proteins. It is a concentrated source of trace minerals that supports enzyme function and metabolism throughout the body.

 

Ingredients

Black Turtle Beans (60%) pineapple (10%) red and green peppers (10%) spanish onion, coriander, olive oil, molasses, umeboshi vinegar.

Serving Suggestions

Salad Concerto is great eaten with a crunchy bread and we recommend a rye or spelt grain or with brown rice. Add some more crunchy salad ingredients and serve with brown rice. It is also a brilliant balance  for non vegetarians with anything from the grill or barbeque and will  help your body gain the healthy benefits of plant protein.
