Ginger Red Bean Popsicles – plus a Giveaway!

Giveaway is now closed  I’ve been drooling through Kathy Hester’s newest book, The Great Vegan Bean Book, for over a month now since it’s release and I can’t stop contemplating which recipe to try out next.  I’ve already made the wonderfully spicy Sloppy Buffalo Beans.  Twice actually.  That burger is so quick and simple to make up on a busy night.  I love it!  But today, I’m sharing the sweeter side of beans.  Ginger Red Bean Popsicles.  They are uniquely flavored for a dessert, especially a popsicle.  Leave it to Kathy to come up with unusual flavors and bean recipes.  The Bean paste is simple to cook up and stores well in the fridge or freezer so you can make up some of these pops in a flash.  In minutes really once you have the paste made.  Just a few simple ingredients to have on hand and you’ve got a lovely simple pallet cleanser after lunch, dinner, heck I’ve had two of them for breakfast already today.  Really fun getting your protein in each day from such a delicious frozen treat. You can see many more recipes from Kathy’s book on her website Healthy Slow Cooking as well. Kathy’s new…
