Beans are a nutritional powerhouse! I once read that they did more to lower cholesterol than oats.
Lots of people say they don't like beans, but they really don't know. Maybe they don't like the way they've been prepared for them before, but the truth is unless you've had a food prepared several different ways...by someone who knows what they're doing, you can't say you don't like it. And we all know that many of our parents didn't do vegetables and beans any justice when they cooked them for us when we were young.
...enough of me on my soapbox...here's the recipe and the video...
