Beans- hearty and heart-healthy, they're also satisfying, inexpensive, nutritious, and more versatile than you might think!

Beans are an excellent everyday meal option; they're easy to make the main focus of a meal, or to sneak into something for an extra nutritional boost. At a time when more people are eating less (or no) meat, beans are an excellent source of protein. The 40 recipes in this collection feature a variety of beans, both dried and canned, for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner.

In Easy Beans, you'll learn the difference between pulses, legumes, and beans; how to soak, sort, and store dried beans; how to use spices to add flavor to bean dishes; and yes, even how to avoid potential unwanted side effects of enjoying beans. Including beans regularly in your diet is easy with these simple recipes for every meal of the day.

Jackie Freeman is a professional chef with over twenty years' experience. Her work spans the range of testosterone-fueled restaurant kitchens, exotic (and not-so-exotic) destinations as a private chef, a borderline-hippie cheese maker and farmhand, a somewhere-between-strict-and-funny culinary instructor (at PCC Markets), a recipe developer with over 900 recipes under her testing belt, a quirky TV and radio personality, a detail-oriented food stylist, and a culinary writer. Jackie lives in Seattle with her family. More importantly, Jackie cooks every day for her growing (in both number and appetite) family, while managing a freelance career, schlepping kids to-and-from school and activities, and finding a moment or two to dig in the garden or go for a run. She brings her unique viewpoint of exacting recipe development skills and professional culinary experience and combines it with just being a regular mom trying to get a healthy, tasty, and somewhat efficient meal on the table before the kids have a meltdown.
