Chili Rice Bowl

 
Why dedicate a whole recipe category to these legumes, especially in the produce-rich height of summer? Well, beans are pretty amazing. They are high in protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, yet low in sodium and fat. Beans can be magically transformed from a handful of pebbles to a pot full of deliciousness that has a small price tag and big flavor.

Beans can be boiled, steamed, slow-cooked, or even barbecued, but, despite the heat, baking beans rates very high among summertime cooks. Baking brings out the sweetness and the tenderness in beans, while helping them retain their shape and texture.

So many recipes simply state: "serves 4" without really describing what a serving is (ounces, pieces, cups?) This is very frustrating. Thanks for including that in yours. - Julia E. Salomon, MS, RD. Registered Dietitian, Nutrition Educator
