Beans - Shop and Save

❁ Dried and canned beans are great food to keep on hand. You may want to stock up when they are on sale.

❁ Dried beans are usually cheaper than canned beans but take longer to cook. Canned beans are fully cooked and ready to use cold or heated.

Using Beans

❁ Although each type of bean is slightly different, you can swap one type for another in most recipes. Use what you have or buy what is cheapest or on sale.

❁ You can replace 1 pound of meat with 2 cups of cooked beans in many recipes.
