Red Kidney beans are the best all purpose beans and very affordable for anyone!

Beans secret ingredient is the fibre, which makes you eat less.

Beans and lentils are a good source of protein, carbohydrates, B-complex vitamins and many minerals. High in folate, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, calcium and selenium. Packed with saponins, an anti-inflammatory compound which helps your immune system protect against cancer, and lowers cholesterol. Good source of fibre.

 

TO PREPARE:

Guideline: 1 cup of dry beans will make 2 1/2 cups of cooked beans - about 4 servings.

 

Rinse to remove any dirt and stones

Cover with 3 - 4 times the volume in warm water and soak overnight

Discard old water. Add fresh water and bring to the boil
