White beans

Not sure you like beans? These white bean recipes will change your mind! White beans, such as navy, cannelini or butter beans, have a soft, creamy texture that makes adding a boost of protein and fibre to plant-based recipes even more enticing. I always use no salt canned beans, and be sure to rinse them well to rinse off some of the gas-producing FODMAPs. 

You can add white beans as a sneaky protein boost to a creamy mashed potato recipe, or blend them into soup. Tired of hummus? White bean mash might just change your life. I love white beans in a spinach and white bean quesadilla or a soft, squishy cauliflower and white bean veggie burger too.
