Beans with Kale and Adobo from Rye in Louisville, KY


At the newly opened Rye in Louisville, Kentucky, chef Tyler Morris champions underrated ingredients. His take on pinto beans, inspired by his time in New Mexico, involves folding the robust legumes together with garlicky kale and spicy adobo sauce. The result, which is finished with lime juice, feta cheese and cilantro, is a dish that celebrates varied textures and flavors. At Rye, Morris uses local butter beans and serves the dish as a side. We also like it as a fortifying stand-alone lunch.
