Green onions and cilantro give this flavourful black bean pasta with prawns a fresh kick
I was invited to the home of Lesley Stowe, of Raincoast Crisps fame, two weeks ago for the launch of her newest product, Raincoast Cookies.
I’ve long been a fan of her crisps but I didn’t know about her background as a chef, caterer, or cookbook author. We were given a little goody bag as a parting gift stuffed with crisps, cookies and, most exciting, The Lesley Stowe Fine Foods Cookbook.
This is a fantastic cookbook with lots of recipes I plan to make at home and the first one I tried, this black bean linguine, is one of the tastiest meals I’ve made in a long time.
I went to one of my local wine stores, the Yaletown Swirl Wine Store, for some advice on what to serve with my linguine and absolutely loved their suggestion – Thornhaven’s Gewurztraminer. I liked it so much that I went back for another bottle the next day to take to my book club.
For ideas on what to do with the leftover cilantro, check out the recipes for Firecracker Shrimp, Vietnamese-style Summer Rolls, and Beef Koftas with Curried Yogurt Sauce.
This recipe makes 8 servings (I halved it when I made it)
