Where do Beans Come From:
Beans come from plants.
Why we Need to Eat Beans:
Beans are rich in nutrients, low in calories and a good source of
protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Kidney, Black, Great Northern beans (white), Lima.
Legumes are also included in beans such as Lentils, Peas, Chickpeas,
Mung, and Soybeans.
How to Cook Beans:
Canned beans are ready to use.
Dried beans need to be washed, cleaned and soaked overnight. (great
job for a younger chef)
To cook, cover with water and simmer one hour or until tender. To
add flavor that the beans can soak up while cooking, add onion,
carrots, ham bones and a bay leaf to the water.
