I absolutely LOVE kidney beans. But I dont really know what to do with them, so I mostly just put them in salads or eat them plain. Does anyone have any tasty suggestions for them?

I suggest red beans and rice. This <a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/121498" target="_blank">recipe</a> is the standard down here in Houston. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

I just leave it out. They even serve a vegetarian version at the restaurant which is simply the same recipe cooked without the sausage. It's yummy! Although if I knew of a good smoked sausage substitute you better believe I'd be putting it in!

See my recipe for Braised Cabbage with Red Beans and Rice in the recipe submission forum. This stuff is <i>goooood</i>. Even my carnivorous I live for baby back ribs wife likes it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

Kidney beans/red beans are my favourite! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"><br><br><br><br>
Some of the things I like to do with them:<br><br><br><br>
* whirr them up with some coriander, cumin, ceyanne pepper and some lemon pepper for a scrummy "hummus". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> Thin that "hummus" down a bit further, and you have a salad dressing that is to DIE for.<br><br><br><br>
* make a 3-bean soup of them with white beans, black beans and red beans. Yes, the white beans <i>will</i> turn a funny colour cause of the black beans, but believe me, it won't affect the taste one bit.<br><br><br><br>
* CHILI! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"> serve that chili with brown rice or quinoa and you have heaven in a bowl (actually, you have heaven in a bowl even if you DON'T serve it over brown rice or quinoa - it's just THAT good).<br><br><br><br>
* Add them onto tacos, tostadas or burritos along with the rest of your condiments. They're also devine in nachos too - lay on the refrieds then the red beans the the rest of your stuff.... OMG! scrummy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:"><br><br><br><br>
* A handful.... or 6 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> in a stirfry is teh YUM! Just add them at the end and stir round a bit so they heat through. Deeeeelish! They're also super-scrummy in a tofu (or tofu-less) veggie scramble.<br><br><br><br>
* Veggietaters! A baked potato opened up and mashed a bit then piled on with your favourite veggies and some red beans. I like lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast at the end, but if you have some NY sauce made up use it, too.<br><br><br><br>
* Dip them into tofu ranch dressing and eat them like chips (my favourite way of having them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> ).

looks a little sauce-y for my taste, but lately I've been keeping some of Amy's brand chili around. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"> awesome with blue corn tortilla chips.<br><br><br><br>
Good luck <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hamster.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hamster:">

Hmmm. Not sure why I opened this thread since kidney beans are the one legume I canNOT stand... but I like the ideas! I'll use pintos or tiny red beans and enjoy them just as much!

Funny, kidneys were the first bean I came to love and pintos were the last ones to make it on my list of likeable beans. Actually, now I'm not sure if I dislike ANY bean at this point. Like all I've tried. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">
