Bean soup is a delicious way to warm yourself up in the winter. But this Tuscan-style soup is even better because it is super healthy.
Black beans, white beans, and yellow corn kernels provide the basis for this protein-rich vegetarian chili. The cheesy polenta topping really makes it special.
A tostada is a flat, crisp corn tortilla with toppings. Here, spicy tomato sauce and pinto beans replace the traditional refried beans.
A vegetarian version of the hearty French country dish, this uses canned beans for a quick and easy one-pot. It’s finished in the traditional way, with a crunchy breadcrumb and herb topping, plus nuts for extra protein.
The spiced coating on the chicken breasts cooks to a delicious crunchy crust, keeping the inside flesh really juicy. It’s served on a simple avocado, bean and tomato salad, but add some rustic bread to complete the meal.
This is a salad that is ideal for a special summer occasion. Crabmeat is a good source of low-fat protein and goes beautifully with juicy papaya and creamy avocado. Serve with light rye bread.
This is a clever variation on the traditional, meat-based Greek dish that is usually quite high in fat. The meat has been replaced with a selection of vibrantly coloured vegetables and the protein is supplied by pinto beans. The dish is topped in the traditional way but with a lighter yogourt-based sauce.
This easy, one-pot dish of root vegetables and pinto beans makes a nourishing winter main courseand needs no accompaniments.
