Common Types of Beans
Legumes are nutritional powerhouses that deliver tons of fiber and protein for pennies. Dried or canned, they make filling additions to salads and soups.
Rich in magnesium, these legumes have a velvety texture and a subtly sweet taste that goes well with smoky flavors, such as bacon or chipotle. Pair brightly colored vegetables and fruits with the shiny purple-black beans for festive salads. Black beans are available dried or canned.
