Hello, world! I am officially ABD (“All But Dissertation”) as of last week. This calls for some chow. Below is the recipe for small white beans in a sweet lemony red sauce, to be known henceforth as ABD Beans. They’ll be ready in about 15 minutes, which is 0.00000000001% of the time I’ll be spending on my dissertation.
Everything’s in the pot!
Stir it together…

The salad that inspired this one is served as a side at Blue State Coffee here in Providence. I’ve been making my lightly edited version as a quick lunch/snack for a while now. It’s so easy, and really tasty both cold and at room temp.
Chickpeas, ready to go!
Pickles. Hand for scale.

I know it’s been a while… I’m currently on fieldwork and it’s hard to cook in the field, so I’ll leave you with this quick lunch recipe I make all the time. It’s foolproof!
Bok choy at the ready!
Rice noodles a-soakin’
The raw ingredients + miso and maple.
Let it soak in…
…and the noodles go in last.
Never cooked lentils before? Neither had I before inventing this recipe. It’s pretty much foolproof. Hooray for curry!
Measure out your lentils
I’m using this fancy organic stuff… not for any reason, really
Boil the lentils with your other ingredients…
…and wait until all of the liquid is absorbed.
Pretty good plain!

Dressing in the bowl, ready to receive the salad!
