Beans, Peas and Lentils

I'll be one of the instructors for our next OSU Extension/Master Food Preserver In the Kitchen event. The class will be held Thursday, April 23 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Sutherlin Community Building, 150 S. Willamette St. (off Central Avenue), Sutherlin, Oregon.

Beans, Peas and Lentils: Eating Well in Spite of the Economy
will be our theme. We'll teach you everything you need to know about cooking, serving and enjoying beans as a main dish or side dish. You'll learn to cook dried beans in a slow cooker, a pressure cooker or on the stovetop and you'll get to sample a variety of bean dishes, including pizza beans, black bean soup, hummus and homemade refried beans. Eloise Aguirre will demo a lentil-pasta casserole and making your own lentil veggieburgers. We'll also discuss and sample a variety of dishes using dried peas, including split pea soup.
