Legumes are an affordable, low-fat meat alternative, full of nutrients (think protein, fibre, iron and vitamin B). A can of beans is incredible versatile — you can choose from black beans to navy beans, romano beans, kidney beans and more — and make everything from rustic classics like beans on toast, to hardy soups and southern-style breakfasts.
Kitchen note: A can of beans has higher sodium levels compared to dried beans, so it’s always advisable to drain and rinse the beans before cooking with them.
