The perfect loaf of bread (part 2)

The methods in these articles break away from the traditional bread making techniques that seem to fill nearly every cookbook published. It wasn’t obvious to me first, but these recipes have two main things in common that really make them special. These two common items are the keys to good bread baking.

Adzuki bean stew

I actually set out to make a bean and bacon soup. When I checked the pantry I didn’t have any white beans but did have some aduki beans. Why would I have aduki beans, you might ask?

Mexican hummus?

You might think this just looks like bean dip. It is similar, but the lime really adds a citrusy kick that you don’t get from ordinary bean dip.
