Beans truly are magical! They are an inexpensive food, can be cooked and served in so many ways and are a good source of fibre and nutrition. They often make up a large part of a vegetarian diet.
Dried beans are a part of the legume family known as pulses, which are only grown for and harvested as crops to be dried. Different pulses are grown around the world and are a uniquely sustainable food that can be stored for a long time and shipped more economically than fresh crops. Canada produces pulses and ships them all over the world.
Aromatics like chopped onions or garlic and salt can be added to cooking water. Use 2 teaspoons salt per pound of beans.
Dried beans are very economical. They can be cooked and then frozen in amounts that you would use.
