The Legume EG: THE BATTLE CONTINUES
5 adzuki bean
5 anasazi bean
5 black beans
5 black-eyed pea (cowpea)
5 black lentil/urad dal
5 brown/Spanish lentil
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 navy bean/great northern

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
split peas +1
May I suggest:
There are of course more. I never met a legume I didn't like.
great Northern bean
green and yellow peas
red kidney bean
French Green/Puy lentils
eta: AREN'T PEANUTS TECHNICALLY A BEAN? Can we add them to the list?
Aren't broad bean and fava bean the same thing?
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.
NO. THEY WILL BE IN THE NUT GAME.
BUT TOMATO MADE BOTH LISTS. HORSESHIT!
llolololoooool what a piece of work we are
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.
I'm still unclear on the difference between red (chili) bean and (red) kidney bean? Just size? I know I can get cans of small or large kidney beans, but they're essentially the same thing.
Do people actually eat dried, cooked, runner beans? ??? I thought they were mildly toxic when eaten this way.
Split, skinned mung beans are a.k.a. moong dal, as far as I know.
