The Legume EG: THE BATTLE CONTINUES

THE LIST:
5 adzuki bean
5 anasazi bean
5 black beans
5 black-eyed pea (cowpea)
5 black lentil/urad dal
5 brown/Spanish lentil
5 cannellini
5 chickpeas (chana dal, garbanzo, ceci)
5 fava bean/broadbean
5 green/french/puy lentil
5 kidney bean
5 lima bean/butter bean
5 moth bean
5 mung
5 navy bean/great northern
5 red bean/chili bean
5 red lentils (masoor dal)
5 runner bean
5 pigeon peas (toor dal, gandules)
5 pinto
5 split peas
5 soybean

The rules:
1. You may vote once per day
2. Vote by adding a point to a bean you like, and subtracting a point from a bean you don't
3. When a bean reaches 0 points, it is eliminated and cannot be voted for again.
4. If the game eventually becomes stagnant and there's no clear end, there will be a poll of some nature to find the winner. We'll agree on a method for the poll. Some options:
vegweb poll to vote for one option
a write-in poll to vote for one or several options (each person lists there top 1 or top 3 or whatever in their post)
a write-in elimination game where things are nominated for elimination on a daily basis. i.e., people just write-in what they want to be eliminated that day, and the item with the most votes after 24h is eliminated. In this option there is no voting for things, only against.
other ideas as they come up

List me some beans & lentils & stuff (ones you would vote for, things you've tried!).

black beans +1
black-eyed pea (cowpea)+1
chickpeas+1
split peas +1

May I suggest:
Pigeon peas+1
Red lentils+1

There are of course more. I never met a legume I didn't like.

Aren't broad bean and fava bean the same thing?

yo AC, i have not included:
boston bean - apparently are navy beans
Madagascar bean - apparently are a variety of lima
wax bean - apparently yellow green beans (same thing, diff color, like yellow and green split peas i guess)
green bean - 'cause it's eaten immature, as a vegetable, and is on the vegetable EG. green beans are the younger version of several beans, apparently
(i know that's a lot of "apparently"s, but i just looked up this stuff on the internets, so if someone knows better correct me)

I lumped together:
fava and broad bean (same thing)
chili bean and red bean (same thing)
great northern and navy (great northern is a type of navy, i guess)
kidney bean and red kidney bean (these are the same, no?)
  - apparently kidney beans are a type of red bean, but i kept them separate 'cause of the size difference and they're both common. i guess that also applies to navy and great northern, but... eh

anyway, if you guys want any of these things separate, say so. i made the list the way it made sense to me, but i'm not as experienced in issues such as small versus large lima beans and such. i also don't care about things other than black or mung beans XP

Yeah, I just looked at a bunch of legume lists, and added the ones I know! I would separate chili bean and kidney bean (I think of chili bean in a can with the sauce..and they seem more like pinto than kidney in texture) and Great Northern and navy seem different to me? Maybe they aren't.

i know what you mean about chili beans, but then I feel like that's more about how they're prepared than the bean per se (same argument about baked beans). Unless there's a particular type of red bean used for chili, which is possible. I never realized how murky the lines better beans are, until wikipedia went and confused me (on a random note, they have a list of dal, which appears to be a list of lentils used for dal, but then there's a random "sweet potato dal" there, which is just dal made with sweet potatoes. huh?)

I agree though that the smaller red beans (the ones used in cans of chili beans and stuff) have a different texture than kidney. That's why I separated them... also cuz i like kidney beans better than the small ones :)

Are haricot beans the same as mung beans?  If not, they should be added to the list.

Are green beans considered legumes even if you eat them fresh? Cause really you're eating more pod than actual bean.
"haricots verts"--green beans
I honestly don't know this.
