Favorite Bean?


#1

I'm incorporating beans into my diet and have been trying to decide what type to get. It appears Navy beans have an amazingly high amount of fiber in them, I think I may go with Navy beans, and also black beans, which are my favorite. What types do you guys use, and for what reasons?


#2

Ceci beans (aka chick peas, aka garbanzo beans).

Perche?

Because they're fucking AWESOME.

E vero.


#3

black beans are my fav, but they take a long time to prepare and then spoil in the fridge kind of fast. excellent with a little fresh spinach and raw parmesan

my weekly thing is garbanzo beans (hummus). keeps easy and i dip lots of veggies in it so it's a win-win.


#4

Do green beans and fava beans count?


#5

Chickpeas mixed with chicken rock.

Black beans or Kidney beans in mah chili.

Themz the only beanz I eatz.


#6

They are such a hassle to deal with that any one you can make sense out of at a given time is the favorite.

Seriously, the red kidney ones probably have the best characteristics.


#7

Some people may think I'm crazy but I eat straight kidney beans all the time, cooked right in a bowl.

Haven't gotten around to experimenting much with others yet, gotta find the best mix with brown rice.
