Kidney beans are a popular and versatile source of protein. Their slight bitterness pairs well with sweetened sauces or dressings, and they are often used as toppings for soups and salads.
Not only this, but these maroon marvels make a great substitute for ground meat because of their texture and protein content. The mild flavour makes them the perfect carrier of seasonings and diverse flavours. A great source of dietary fibre, iron and vitamins – these bountiful beans deserve a spot in your next salad!
