Last week I showed you how to cook beans properly to maximize nutrient absorption and eliminate the awkwardness that comes as a result of eating beans. And it seriously works! So this week I want to show you a few easy ways to use those beans that you spent so much time properly soaking and cooking. And we’re going to start with hummus.
Beans. Don’t we all have a love-hate relationship with them? The love because they are so good for you! Depending on the specific type you eat you can get varying amounts of soluble fiber, protein, antioxidants, copper, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, just to name a few. And the hate because, well, how do I approach this delicately? We all know the end result problem with beans, right? [cough, cough]
