Ingredient Hotspot: Red Kidney Beans
Red kidney beans are very high in fibre, contributing to their cholesterol-lowering and blood sugar stabilising abilities. With high cholesterol and Type II diabetes on the rise in Australia, red kidney beans are a great addition to most of our diets if we are to prevent these types of diseases. They also contain a high amount of antioxidants, folic acid, Vitamin B6 and magnesium. The red colour of their skins is due to the antioxidants and phytochemicals, which are vital for effective detoxification in our bodies. Red Kidney beans are also protective against many forms of cancers. One study even showed that individuals who eat two or more servings of beans during the week have a 24% reduced risk of certain cancers, particularly breast cancer due to the impact of beans on estrogen detoxification! Unfortunately, many don’t like the taste or texture of red kidney beans, which is why this recipe is so handy because the beans are very well hidden!
Try and find kidney beans in BPA free cans that have no added preservatives or sugar.
