6 Delicious and Easy Bean Recipes


brown wooden spoon with red and brown beansSource

Beans, a staple in diets across the globe, are celebrated for their vast nutritional benefits. Packed with protein, fiber, and essential vitamins and low in fat, beans are a powerhouse of nutrition that can play a significant role in a healthy diet. Despite their benefits, many find incorporating beans into their daily meals a challenge. This may be due to misconceptions about preparation time or simply a lack of inspiring recipes.

Below, we’ll dismantle these barriers and introduce you to six delightful and straightforward recipes to make beans a regular part of your meals. Whether you're a seasoned cook or looking to broaden your dietary horizons, these recipes will not only enhance your meals with minimal effort but also ensure you're reaping the nutritional rewards beans have to offer.

  1. Hearty Soups and Stews

There's nothing quite like the comfort of a warm bowl of soup or stew, and beans are the perfect ingredient to elevate these dishes. With their ability to absorb flavors and add heartiness, beans can transform a simple broth into a filling meal. They are ideal for a variety of soups and stews, from classic chili to rich minestrone, providing both texture and nutrition.

For a quick and nutritious meal, try an instant pot 15 bean soup recipe. This dish is a celebration of beans, combining various types with spices and vegetables for a richly flavored soup that's both satisfying and easy to prepare. The instant pot does most of the work, cooking the beans to perfection with minimal oversight. This method not only saves time but also allows the flavors to meld beautifully, creating a wholesome dish that's perfect for any day of the week.

  1. Bean-Based Salads

Beans can turn a simple salad into a robust main dish, adding not just texture and flavor but also significant nutritional value. They work wonderfully with a variety of greens, vegetables, and dressings, making it easy to put together a meal that's both satisfying and healthy. From a vibrant black bean and corn salad to a Mediterranean-inspired chickpea salad, the possibilities are endless.

Using canned beans is a convenient shortcut that can make assembling a nutritious salad a breeze. Just rinse and drain your choice of beans and mix them with your favorite salad ingredients for an instant meal packed with protein and fiber. It’s a great way to create a quick lunch or dinner that's both filling and refreshing.

  1. Creative Bean Dips and Spreads

Bean dips and spreads are a delightful way to snack on beans or add an extra layer of flavor to your meals. They're not only delicious but also incredibly versatile, serving as a dip for vegetables and crackers or a spread for sandwiches and wraps. Making bean dips is surprisingly simple, with hummus being a popular and easy option.

Start with a base of beans like chickpeas for hummus or black beans for a Mexican-inspired dip. Then, add in flavors like garlic, lemon juice, and herbs to taste. The result is a creamy, flavorful spread that's perfect for snacking or adding a protein boost to your meals. Encouraging experimentation with different beans and flavorings can lead to discovering new favorite recipes that are both nutritious and enjoyable.

  1. Beans as a Meat Substitute

Beans are an excellent meat substitute, offering a high protein content that can satisfy even the most dedicated carnivores. They're particularly useful in creating vegetarian or vegan versions of classic dishes, providing a similar texture and heartiness to meat. For example, black beans can be used to make delicious veggie burgers, lentils are perfect for a meat-free shepherd's pie, and chickpeas can transform tacos into a vegetarian feast.

This substitution not only introduces a variety of new flavors and textures to your meals but also contributes to a more environmentally friendly diet. By choosing beans as a meat alternative, you're reducing your carbon footprint and embracing a more sustainable way of eating. Plus, beans are a budget-friendly option, making it easier to eat well without breaking the bank.

  1. Beans in Baking

Incorporating beans into your baking is a creative way to enhance the nutritional value of sweet treats. Beans can add moisture and fiber to baked goods, resulting in deliciously soft and satisfying desserts. For instance, black beans can be the secret ingredient in rich, fudgy brownies, while white beans blend seamlessly into cakes and cookies, adding a protein boost without altering the flavor.

Pureeing beans before adding them to your batter is the key to integrating them smoothly. This method ensures that the beans enhance the texture of your baked goods without leaving any noticeable chunks. It's a fantastic way to make your favorite desserts a bit healthier, proving that indulgence and nutrition can go hand in hand.

  1. International Bean Dishes

Exploring international bean dishes can open up a world of culinary possibilities, introducing you to new flavors and cooking techniques. Beans are a staple ingredient in many cultures, each offering its unique take on how to prepare and enjoy them. For example, Indian cuisine features rajma, a kidney bean curry rich in spices and flavor. Middle Eastern cuisine offers falafel, deep-fried balls made from ground chickpeas or fava beans, known for their crispy exterior and soft interior. Meanwhile, Brazilian feijoada, a hearty stew of black beans with pork or beef, showcases the versatility of beans in more robust dishes.

Diving into these international recipes not only broadens your culinary skills but also brings a taste of different cultures into your kitchen. It's an invitation to experiment with new ingredients and discover how diverse the world of beans truly is. Whether you're looking for a comforting bowl of soup or an exotic stew, beans can provide the foundation for an endless array of delicious meals.


Embracing beans in your diet offers nutritious, versatile, and delicious meal options. From the simplicity of an instant pot soup to the creativity of bean-based baking, these six recipes offer just a glimpse into the potential beans have to transform your meals. Whether you're substituting meat in your favorite recipes, exploring new salads, or trying international cuisines, beans provide a healthy, affordable, and eco-friendly way to enjoy your food. By incorporating more beans into your diet, you're not only benefiting your health but also contributing to a more sustainable world.

Unique Zucchini Recipes

Summer is here, so you know what that means? Zucchini season isn't far behind! This year instead of sneaking zucchinis on to the doorstep of everyone you know, why not put your abundance of fresh veggies to work with these unique recipes. From a stew that makes great use of zucchini to  the tastiest zucchini fries, this list has something for everyone on it.

I am sure you are going to find a few recipes you want to save to your favorite pinterest board.

To be honest, I have never really eaten zucchini. My parents didn't grow it in their small garden when I was a kid. My grandpa was a farmer, and he just didn't like it, so he didn't grow it either. Over the last ten years or so, I have been finding myself in possession of various zucchinis that friends and neighbors have proudly presented to me, hoping I would enjoy them.

Sadly, they usually set on my counter for a few days to a week before I cut them into chunks and set them outside for the squirrels and birds. I have no idea what to do with them! Well, after curating this list of tasty recipes, I know I will put the next ones to work.

12+ Cranberry Sauce Recipes to Crave

If you want to step up from canned cranberry sauce, you are in the right place! I found 12 of the best cranberry sauce recipes to share with you. 

I have never even tried cranberry sauce before. I am a 40 year old woman.
Growing up, it was not a dish to be found at a single Thanksgiving meal I attended. I can't recall ever seeing my mom ponder a can of cranberry sauce at the store, and certainly she never bought fresh cranberries. I don't even think those could be found in my tiny town growing up.

My mother in law likes it though. Over the years she seems to have figured out that cranberry never occurs to me when I am preparing the meal. She has been bringing a can of cranberry along hopefully for years.

Canned cranberry sauce looks gross though. It reminds me of beets, which I also don't like. HA! I used to pride myself on not being a picky eater, but this post might prove otherwise.

This year I am going to go out of my way and attempt to make a real proper cranberry dish to wow my mother in law this Thanksgiving. I found 12 recipes that look amazing. So much better than a blob of canned cranberry!
