Black-Eyed Pea Fondue  Warm Red Quinoa Salad

Remember when we told you about our top-secret project to bulk up our bulk bin recipes? You guys really stepped up and answered our call -- thank you! Below are the recipes we've chosen for Editors' Pick testing. You may now call dibs on the recipes you'd like to test -- we only need one person to test each recipe, but feel free to call as many as you want -- there are lots to go around!

Here's a refresher on our Editors' Pick community testing process:

Any food52 member is welcome to help us test our Editors' Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test in the comments section below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix. Don't forget to email us your notes (about 100 words) to [email protected] by next Tuesday at 5pm.

We'll collect your comments, decide the official list of Editors' Picks and publish your evaluation in the headnote if the recipe is selected as an Editors' Pick (with credit, of course!). And even if the recipe you test isn't chosen as an Editors' Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Perhaps we could have a special "Editor's Pick Hero Award" for the cook who volunteered to take on the most dishes this round. I applaud those who had the time, energy and hungry households to make more than a dish or two! Some took on five or more! (AntoniaJames). I only did 2, but I'll have healthy whole grain lunch leftovers all week. Yum.

Thanks for testing this! Feel free to add as much or little chipotle as you like. It's pretty spicy with the amount specified. Hope you enjoy it.

This is from your friendly editors at Food52.

Thank you all for generously leaping to test this record number of Editors' Pick candidates -- yet another example of the power of the food52 community at work, making a rather confusing system work seamlessly. Just two recipes are left: Sweet and Savory Whole Oats and Sweet Brown Rice Porridge; Spicy Stewed Black-eyed Peas and Baby Limas with Corn Quesadillas

I can do Mung Bean and Mixed Rice Sweet Congee tonight, thanks to a friend who just gave me forbidden rice and mung beans.

Jalapeno and Black-Eyed Pea fondue is me, then, as I am on an island off the southwest coast of Florida and the ingredients seems readily available at the local Publix lol

Is there anything left to test (sorry, i was travelling all weekend and without a computer until this morning, which was very stressful. The being without the computer part, not the travelling part haha).

Is there a prize for last man standing?

I would love to have claimed more recipes, but not having all the ingredients (red quinoa, not black, for instance) made me ineligible. No wallflowers here, but trying them with current inventory.

I will make the Meyer Lemon Chia Seed Pudding and the 10-12-12-12 sprouted lentil soup.

OK...I've got my ricotta EP candidate in the oven, the porky pea soup simmering on the stove, a new recipe ready to upload and a rainy Sunday afternoon...I'll tackle the short grain rice and black quinoa...
PS. I think the bisi bela was claimed by Jennifer Ann, so that's one more to scratch off the list.

Oh, I can keep you company, too. This almost feels like high school dances when you don't get asked...or am I dating myself?

Panfusine, Jennifer Ann has chosen your recipe - it just hasn't gotten a claimed tag!

I am excited to see that my recipe, Volcano Rice Tabouli Salad, is up for testing. I see it has been claimed but I don't see the comment claiming it. Was it tagged by accident?

Thanks
Robin
