Did you know that I love to cook with beans?? Not only are they one of the most frugal sources of protein, but they’re also filled with fiber and nutrients. Luckily my husband loves beans as much as I do, in fact his favorite meal is beans and cornbread.
If you’ve never tried cooking dried beans before then I would highly encourage you to try my slow cooker recipe. It really is easy and fool-proof. Plus, you can freeze the extras or make one of these amazing recipes with them! And when you cook them yourself, they are not only cheaper, but also healthier than the canned variety.
If you’re trying to cut down on your grocery bill, but also eat healthy then I would recommend replacing meat with beans at least once per week. I put this list together to give me some new ideas and encourage you to try something new with this amazing, yet very under appreciated vegetable. Enjoy!
