Nutritional Note:

Kidney beans are among the richest sources of plant-based protein and bean starch is a so-called slow-release carbohydrate making it an excellent food choice for sustainable energy. They are also rich in various vitamins, minerals, fibres and antioxidants. (Do not eat uncooked kidney beans as they can potentially be toxic when eaten raw). Always follow packet instructions. Cooked tin-canned kidney beans are a convenient choice.
