This recipe is meatless but you will never miss it~ I promise.
It will not only save on the grocery budget but it is so good for your heart health.
Soak a package of beans~ you can use Navy or Cannellini beans~ over night. If you don't have overnight you can put your beans in a pot and bring them to boil. Turn off the heat ~ cover the pot and let them sit for about four hours. After the beans have soaked fill your pan full of water and cook the beans. I add a little salt. Watch that the water does not boil down. Keep the beans covered with water until they are tender.
