Many folks are trying to eat less meat. It’s good for your health and good for the environment. So why not do a vegetarian night ata least once a week and help everyone out? Consiger a bean burger night.
There are so many types of beans available in your grocery store – navy, turtle, pinto, chickpea, kidney and so many more. Beans are jam-packed with complex carbohydrates, protein, and fiber. And they are sources of Vitamin B, calcium, and iron. They are a win-win food for your health and for your budget.
You can buy almost any type of bean in cans or jars, but if you really want to stretch your dollar go for the inexpensive packages of dry beans. Check out the ethnic foods section of your grocery store to see if the prices are better than in the regular section, and you might find larger bags of your favorites.
If you haven’t yet tried bean burgers, we rounded up a baker’s dozen of the best recipes we could find on the Internet. Bean burgers are a cheap and delicious alternative to beef or chicken, and so good you may never go back. Serve these veggie burgers in the same way as beef burgers, on a bun with your favorite fixings. Most of these recipes call for canned beans, which makes them super easy and fast to make. But if you have taken the challenge and cooked up some dry beans, you can save even more money.
