Only one other chickpea lover?!

I'm going with chickpeas and lentils, because they're so versatile.

But I am boring and eat 'em with rice, mostly.

@Mae

How do you prepare your chickpeas? DH does not like hummus.

This is the only recipe that is a hit with all the fam: https://www.budgetbytes.com/quick-curried-chick-peas/

Chickpea and great northern bean are the main two I eat and like.

Chickpea masala, yummy ! and I really enjoy making French-Canadian "bine" in maple syrup with great northern bean. So satisfying after a long day x-c skiing (I know, I know winter is over)

Black bean and rice "à la mexican" is quite good too and is often on my menu.

In Order of Usage and most common dishes:

Black Beans - Stir Frys + Burritos + burgers + anything else I don't use other legumes for
Lentils - Curried (by themselves), stews, sometimes chilis
Chickpeas - Chana anything (masala and coconut flavoured curry-ish with some kind of sweet side/topping is my fav), sometimes salads
Pinto - mash up with a lot of fat for refried goodness (rare)

DS and DWs favs are lentils and there is a hatred in my household for kidney beans so they are avoided.

Dry split peas, I love a rich split pea and coconut milk soup.

Dry garbanzo beans / chickpeas are the runner up. There are so many tasty ways to prepare them, chana masala, hummus, and in salads.

Green beans. I will steam them and add some salted butter.
