Beans (kidney, black, pinto, etc.) - keeping them interesting

AreBe | Jun 4, 2010 07:46 AM

After a second bout of diverticulitis I am MUCH more diligent to increase fiber in my diet. Almost every day starts with Fiber One cereal with low sugar yogurt. I'd like to eat a serving or two of beans each day, but they get so boring even though the Bush Brothers and Duke have so many varieties http://www.bushbeans.com/products/oth... The pantry usually holds some Camellia brand dry beans for Red Beans & Rice.

I really enjoyed some canned black beans after I drained then, chopped jalapeno, onion & cilantro in the food processor, and combined with balsamic, salt & pepper. I guess I am looking particularly for bean salad ideas but open to all suggestions.

For the next few months I've got plenty of fresh rosemary, thyme, marjoram, dill & chives!
