    Bounty of Beans

    There are thousands of bean varieties giving you an inexpensive yet a healthful way to include nutrient-rich foods. Provide soluble fiber curbing your appetite for fattier more dangerous foods. For diabetics the soluble fiber in beans helps to create more insulin receptor sites. Eating a cup of cooked beans a day can lower your total cholesterol. Decreases your risk of heart disease. The compound found in beans-isoflavins lagnins phytic acid sapopin and protease inhibitors- have been shown to keep normal cells from turning cancerous and inhibit their growth. Soybean contains phytoestrogens, a weaker version of the estrogen produced in our bodies naturally. Phytoestrogens are believed to reduce the risk of breast and prostate cancer, by blocking overactivity of estrogen and testosterone which can spur cancerous tumor growth. A serving – 1/2 cup of cooked dry beans – is about 120 calories and full of complex carbohydrates, though beans offer a low-glycemic index value. The carbohydrates in beans do not cause as quick or as steep a rise in blood sugar as do many other carbohydrate-rich foods. A good source of B vitamins including folic acid. Providing the minerals iron, potassium, selenium, magnesium and even some calcium. Dried beans and their cousins also are a good source of insoluble fiber, which promotes digestive health and relieves constipation. Beans provide little fat and absolutely no cholesterol. While beans do not supply complete protein, researchers believe that the particular amino acids in dry beans may help prevent various diseases. Dried or canned beans will give you the same benefit, but canned beans are quick and easy but high in sodium so be sure to drain and rinse very well.

    This is a hearty, thick soup! You can even say Stoup! Meatless! Good for those trying to avoid meat! The lemon bring an other flavor to it! Using can beans makes this quicker then fresh but if you have the time go for the dried beans.

    Recipe #50389

    You can't beat making soup start to finish in 10 minutes.This is easy no peeling and very quick great main meal or snack! And you don't cook out all the vitamins because it's not simmering on the stove for hours.Clean up is easy just the Vita-Mix.The results are hot which you can't get in a blender or food processor. The first half becomes smooth and cream while the second half added on low speed gives the soup texture. Oh almost forgot thanks to Alan Hall for the recipe, the guy that sold me the machine.

    Recipe #74735

    This was my first time having this type of beans. They reminded me of white navy beans.The bacon and smoked turkey wings give this dish a nice smokey flavor. Epazote has a flavor similar to coriander. It is also called Mexican tea or wormseed. I found this dried in Mexican specialty store This is great with beans because it works to reduce gas. This is a very fragrant and flavored herb that takes some time to get used to. Like cilantro, it has a tenacity that is best mellowed by cooking. Its pungency is well complimented by beans, and it has a mellowing effect on other intense spices. Use of this herb dates back to Aztecan times. Name changed by request of Jen.

    These are the best! Not being a Fan of limas I just adore these. It may be the hot cheese or the sweetness of the brown sugar. I don't know but it's just too GOOD! It's a great side or serve over rice for a main meal. You can also skip the bacon if you're not into meat! You can add liquid smoke!
