Beans are packed with plant-powered nutrition – just one ½ cup serving of these pinto beans provides 5 grams of filling fiber and 7 grams of satisfying protein; it’s no surprise that these legumes are beloved by vegetarians, dieters and foodies alike.

Mushroom & Veggie Stew
This stew is packed with savory veggies and hearty beans, but the mushrooms are the star flavor. Feel free to use a combination of cremini, white button and wild mushrooms (including shiitake and oyster), but opting for a single variety will work wonderfully, too. Did you know that mushrooms have about 15 vitamins and minerals, are rich in antioxidants and even offer a bit of protein? You’ll want to soak up every bit with some crusty homemade bread
. And if you’re looking for more magical mushroom dishes, be sure to try this vegetarian mushroom-bean chili
