TOP 10: Recipes For Adding More Legumes To Your Diet

16 May, 2021 , , , ,

There are a ton of reasons to include legumes in your diet. Beans, lentils and chickpeas are an excellent source of plant-based protein. They are great for the environment because they require relatively little water. Legumes are very rich in vitamins, minerals and soluble fiber. In addition, they are inexpensive. The only downside is that we don’t always know how to prepare them. Should they be soaked in advance? Should we use dried or canned legumes? With these 10 easy and delicious recipes you will learn how to cook them and will start adding them to your weekly menu.
