We have our winners! Kayla who said “”I’d make split pea soup! Its the only thing I’m sure my little brother will eat.” And Bianca who said “It’s been far too long since I’ve made split pea soup, so I’d go with their green split peas and cook ‘em up with some vegan bacon, barley, and lots of sriracha!” Looks like the winners were split peas, huh? Thanks for playing everyone!
From cutlets to stews to meatballs to baked, us vegans love our beans! I don’t know that a more versatile, affordable and tasty form of protein exists. And judging from some of our VeganMofo blog titles, you all agree. We’ve got The Snarky Chickpea, The Vegan Chickpea, Body By Chickpeas and Hot Vegan Chick…peas. And of course there’s love for the quick cooking legume from Kittens Gone Lentil and Pea Soup Eats.
Now take all that love, times it by a million and add to it a company committed to non-GMO beans grown on family farms in the United States’ Pacific Northwest. Your chickpea can be traced right back to the field where it was grown! I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a great roadtrip idea.
I was able to try a few of PNW Co-op Specialty Foods‘ varieties over the past few months and it was fun to have brand new textures and colors in such a familiar ingredient! I used their garbanzos in both Gumbo and Chana Masala and the results were fantastic.
Today’s giveaway is for enough beans to get you through winter – or if you’re like me and eat beans like they’re going out of style, at least a month or two of it. Two lucky winners will receive a 2lb bag each of Pedrosillano chickpeas, Spanish Pardina Brown Lentils & Green Split Peas. The beans come in a nifty reusable linen bag and they are all verified by the Non-GMO Project.
To enter this contest, just pick one of their bean varieties and tell us what you’d cook with it! You’ll need a US mailing address and make sure to leave a valid email address so that we can contact you if you win. Contest closes this evening at 9pm Central time, good luck everyone!
