Seems like everywhere I turn these days I read another article praising the health value and nutrition of beans. Sounds good. I'm thinking I'd like to have more of this awesome food source in my family's diet. One problem.
I've never eaten beans. I've never cooked them. I don't have a CLUE what to do with them. I have served refried beans for my husband when we have tacos, but they're just out of a can.
My mom didn't (doesn't?) like beans and never served them. So I grew up saying, "I don't like beans." But I never did really get around to trying them! When Henry was a baby I bought a can of black beans for him to try, and he really liked them. I tried them too but thought they were too salty, and I didn't buy them again.
And here is where YOU come in . . . . .
Anyone out there eat beans? Any suggestions, ideas, recipes, anything you'd like to share? I'd like to find a way to integrate some sort of beans into our diet. I might get a little resistance at first, but the kids are usually willing to try new things! Oh, and does anyone want to share with me what a lentil is? They are often listed along with beans and I don't even know what they are. I'm sure I can look it up on the internet, but I thought this might be more fun!
Thanks in advance!!!
