When you think of kidney beans, you may think boring. But despite their lowly culinary status, kidney beans are truly a superfood.
Kidney bean cousins include white kidney beans (better known as cannellini beans) which are more mild in flavor than their red-skinned relatives and French kidney beans (called flageolets) -tiny, tender versions of the traditional kidney bean.
Mix kidney beans into soups, sprinkle over salads or try an alluring kidney bean hummus with cumin as an alternative to the standby.
