Eat your beans!!!!

I wasn't planning on posting today...but it's 'National Eat Beans Day'!!

So, seriously how could I not resist!!

I don't have a new recipe lined up but I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for a round up as I haven't done one of those in a while.

So here we are (a small selection) in all their beanie glory. I always have numerous beans hand as I am a huge believer in soaking and cooking large batches of dried beans (so cost effective too) and then freezing them in portion sizes ready for a quick dessert, stew or salad!

So go cook up a big batch and let me know your favourite beanie recipes :-)

Some savouries....

Homemade smoky baked beans

Black bean beet burger
Bean and pea dip (or sandwich filler)

Roasted chickpeas...they count as beans!!

Some sweets....

My absolute favourite healthy truffles in the whole wide world!

Single banana blondie muffin top...yum!

Creamy dark chocolate pudding or shake...two ways!

Cookie pie toped with dark chocolate ice-cream (double bean action!)
