The importance and guides on how to cooking beans

Somehow beans have developed a reputation for being dull, bland and boring, and have almost become a symbol of the common perception of vegan food as being dull, bland and boring.

According to some sources, beans were one of the first crops cultivated when humans began to develop agriculture, and their cultivation played a key role in the human evolution from a primitive existence toward a more stabilised one.

It’s easy to see what an amazing development this must have been for early humans, since beans are not only a powerful source of nutrition, but they can be dried and stored for years.

High in protein, fibre, B vitamins, phytochemicals and antioxidants, yet low in fat, sugar and of course cholesterol (which is only present in foods of animal origin), beans are simply one of the best foods available to us.

If you have some pre-cooked beans in the refrigerator, it’s easy to just add them into a veggie sauté which can then become a substantial portion of your meal.

When they are mixed in with cooked veggies and well-seasoned, you would almost never know you were eating beans.

There are many different varieties of beans, so if you’re interested in taking advantage of their excellent nutritional benefits, I would suggest that you try a few different varieties to see which type appeals to you the most.

Even if you think you’re ‘not a fan’, you may well be surprised by how much variation there is in the legume family. And if you are willing to be a bit adventurous, you might even want to try some heirloom varieties.
