Black beans are a good source of plant protein and fiber, two nutrients that help make a meal satisfying. Protein is essential for promoting cell growth and repair, boosting immune function, and aiding in muscle health. Not only does fiber help keep digestion regular, but it may also reduce your risk of colorectal cancer. In just 15 minutes you can whip up this nutritious and delicious side.
