One of my new eating habits this year is to get more protein at breakfast, which makes a big difference in my energy level throughout the day. As a vegetarian, my preferred source for protein is beans, and there are so many varieties, including heirlooms, that it never gets boring! Here are some recipes I enjoy or want to try. Do you have any favorite ways to eat beans for breakfast?
We always keep a couple cans of beans in the pantry but ideally make beans from scratch – they're so much more delicious (and less wasteful) that way! If you're new to cooking beans, don't worry, it's really not difficult; check out our posts on How To Cook Beans, A Fast, Foolproof, No-Soak Method, How to Cook Beans in the Slow Cooker, and Cooking Beans in a Clay Pot. I like to cook up a pot the night before or on Sunday so we have plenty for the week ahead.
