Beans are a nutritional superstar. It’s tough to find other hearty, protein packed food that are as rich in nutrients and fiber and low in cost. They can be added to Yumm Bowls and soups as the main protein or can help you cut back a bit on the meat in your standard carnivorous favorites. But making homemade beans has alluded me for years.
So why even attempt to cook dried beans? The sodium content is far lower and the flavor can’t be beat. Plus I won’t have to recycle several aluminum cans and I’ll pay three to five times less per serving.
