Often used in Mexican food, Pinto Beans can be eaten whole, mashed or fried. If you're wondering how to replace red meat in your diet, Pinto Beans are a good option. These hearty beans are a good source of fibre, and when combined with a whole grain such as brown rice or wholewheat pasta, the resulting protein load is comparable to meat or dairy products.
To Cook Pinto Beans, first wash the dried beans and then pre-soak overnight OR boil on medium high for 10 minutes. Drain and rinse very well. Then cook the beans over medium low heat at a simmer in water or stock with seasonings until pinto beans are tender (about 2-3 hours).
