5 Beans You Should Be Eating More Often + 13 Recipes

Packed with a variety of nutrients, beans are a known staple in many plant-based diets. If you’re not already consuming your fair share, read on to learn about the benefits of beans, plus recipes for various meals throughout the day. And if you’re curious about gas, don’t worry—we’re covering that, too!

These little foods are loaded with fiber, which can lower the risk for certain types of cancer, regulate your digestive system, support the detoxification process and make you feel fuller for longer periods of time. Praised for being super foods, beans are also a great source of phytonutrients, zinc and iron for vegetarians and vegans. Oh! And protein—did we mention beans have tons of protein?

If you’re unfamiliar with the versatile nature of these tiny-but-mighty beans, that’s OK! The following list explores the benefits of five popular varieties, in addition to simple ways to prep them and how to avoid the often-feared bloating and digestive upset.

1. Black beans

Black beans are one of the most prominent beans in plant-based cooking. You probably see these mostly in veggie burgers, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Black beans can secretly be added to brownie recipes for a guilt-free treat (we promise, it’s delicious!). They can also be combined with flour and spices to make vegan “meatballs.” But perhaps the simplest way to enjoy black beans, aside from topping your salad of course, would be in a hearty bowl of black bean soup.

2. Cannellini beans

Also known as white kidney beans, cannellini beans are a must-have in any pantry to create rich, dairy-free sauces. You can enjoy the benefits of these beans in a creamy spinach dip or a vegan-inspired white bean pate to spread on crackers or toast. And once again, there’s also soup (we suggest a hearty Tuscan kale). And for you pasta lovers, cannellini beans are perfect for creamy sauces. Simply blend the beans, with water, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper to create a satisfying sauce for any type of noodle.

3. Garbanzo beans

When mashed, garbanzo beans, or chickpeas, can be used to create tuna-inspired dips or sandwich fillings. You can also bake them with various sauces and seasonings to serve as a nutritious snack. If you’re looking for more of a challenge in the kitchen, grind up your dried garbanzos into a flour to create vegan omelets that actually look and taste like the real thing. But perhaps the most popular (and easiest) way to enjoy your chickpeas is in a homemade hummus serve with baked pita chips and sliced vegetables. Delish!

4. Kidney beans

Kidney beans are essential in one of the greatest bulk recipes of all time—bean chili! Unlike traditional chili, veggie-based chili recipes are super easy to prepare in large quantities. Plus, it freezes well! Another simple and unique way to prepare kidney beans is with seasoned quinoa and sautéed greens.

5. Cranberry beans

Cranberry beans are one of the most eye-catching beans because of their beautiful rosy streaks. But don’t be fooled by the name, they taste nothing like cranberries. Although not as common as the other choices on the list, they are just as nutritious and delicious! You can enjoy this beautiful pick in a variety of ways, like in stews accompanied by tasty vegetables for a nourishing meal or side dish.
