Beans are one of my favorite pantry staples loaded with fiber, protein and antioxidants, so you are sure to find a plethora of healthy bean recipes with Italian and Latin flair in this collection. Pinto, black, white cannellini, green, yellow and even purple string beans make their appearance through the seasons.
Soups and stews are probably the perfect vehicle to deliver as much bean goodness as possible. I make a big pot of these creamy black beans weekly to have handy for anything from breakfast to dinner, over a bed of brown rice topped with salsa, or as a spread on these sweet potato avocado tartines. Enjoy!
