PORRIDGE BEANS

…whetting your taste bud one meal at a time img_3492

The truth is that I don’t really like beans, that is not to say that I don’t eat beans, NO I do eat beans, but I guess I had a lot of options so I can skip beans. I grew up surrounded with guys that can eat beans as 3 square meals a day and still will want it same for the rest of the week. It does not bother them the same way it bothers me. Then I started reading more about beans…funny right. I have learned to get more beans into my diet. Here is it, beans are very healthy, and they are affordable. Beans are high in antioxidants, fiber, protein, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, and zinc. Eating beans regularly may decrease the risk of diabetes, heart disease, colorectal cancer, and helps with weight management. Beans are hearty, helping you feel full so you will tend to eat less.

  • Once it’s almost soft, add the blended red bell pepper, stock cube, crayfish, and onions then continue to cook
