Here’s a simple recipe for browned white beans. Make these as a side dish, or serve them over grains with a dollop of yogurt for a light, healthy main course. I like making these with a large variety of white bean, such as the gigante or large butter bean, because they’re easy to flip so you can brown both sides. The beans should be mostly dry when you’re ready to start cooking.tags: sides beans sauté more

Mung beans make a great addition to your pantry, and here’s the main reason: they cook much faster than most other beans! Boil whole mung beans in water and they’re ready to eat in about 45 minutes. Split mung beans, which have the outer skin removed and are yellow, take only 20-30 minutes to cook. That means that you can throw a handful of grains like quinoa, rice, or rolled oats in with the beans, take your time chopping up vegetables like carrots, broccoli, and kale, and then throw them into the pot for the last 10 minutes of cooking. Voila, you have a flavorful, nutritionally balanced soup, and you probably had time for a glass of wine and a phone call, too.tags: soups and stoups beans simmer more
