Decide how many gifts you need – have as many bowls or little bags. Divide the beans between all bowls or bags, evenly.
Suggestion of beans:
Dried baby lima beans, dried black eye peas, dried garbanzo (chickpeas) beans, dried mung beans, dried small red beans, dried slit peas, dried yellow split peas, dried soybeans, dried white beans, navy beans, red kidney, pearl barley, lentils … the more colorful the better!
Probably no more than a total of 2 cups per bag.
Seasonings packet (in a separate bags): small quantities, no more than 1/2 tsp per seasoning per bag, for a total seasoning bag of about 1 or 2 TBS:Paprika, oregano, old bay leaf,thyme, onion powder, red pepper, salt, black pepper, brown sugar, garlic powder, dried parsley…
Place seasonings packet inside beans bag, tie with pretty ribbon, adding the recipe card (suggestion of recipe card below). Note: lentils, split peas take less time to cook!
