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 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!
