Protein Power: 6 Ways to Eat Black Beans

These cheap little legumes are high in fiber and a good source of plant-based protein—so why aren’t you eating more of them? We’ve got six ways to add them to your diet.
So you’re making chicken tonight…again. How about a new side? Heat oil in a pan and add several cloves of fresh, chopped garlic. Sautee the garlic for a minute, and then add in a can of black beans, cooking until beans are heated through.

Get creative and toss in your favorite seasonings, too—cumin, chili powder, and cilantro all work well.
