HAK for a special human bean

By Frieda Tuesday, March 24, 2020 0 , , , , Permalink 0

Perhaps you had already seen it in my IG Stories, a super well-filled goodie crate with only vegetable power beans from HAK.

The crate contained 5 handy stand-up pouches with different kinds of beans. In addition, specially developed for us, two matching spice mixes by chef and vegetable coach Herman den Blijker. I made a delicious dish with the Kidney beans and I share the recipe below.

HAK Vegetables. Bravo for the bean!

Beans, or legumes, are super healthy. They are a source of healthy fiber, protein and good carbohydrates. Because they contain so much protein, they are good meat substitutes. Ideal for the vegetarians and vegans among us.

Did you know that beans are not only good for your health, but also good for our planet? The ecological footprint of beans is low, they make very few demands on the soil and can grow on dry soil.

Beans are also extremely versatile. With these 5 different bean varieties I can vary endlessly, each with its own taste and bite.

Note; I made this dish with meat because, what can I say, I like meat a lot.  Of course this dish is also delicious without meat and the Kidney beans give a nice bite.

Enjoy your meal!
