Ingredients

  • As the cold and damp autumnal weather is setting in, we are turning up the heat with a delicious black bean and sweet potato curry. Black beans are universally used in soups and stews and are considered a super food. The black bean has a very dense and meaty texture and is a popular addition to a lot of vegetarian recipes.They are a good source of protein, and when combined with a whole grain such as whole wheat pasta or brown rice, provide protein comparable to that of meat or dairy foods.Black beans are also rich in dietary fiber.
  • For this reason, these and other beans are helpful foods for people with diabetes and those with hypoglycemia, because beans have a low GI. This means that blood sugar does not rise as high after eating beans as it does when compared to other foods. This beneficial effect is probably due to two factors: the presence of higher amounts of absorption-slowing protein in the beans, and their high soluble fiber content. Black beans are also as rich in antioxidants as the humble cranberry, a fruit considered an antioxidant superstar. It has been found that the darker the bean’s seed coat, the higher its level of antioxidant activity.
