3 Unexpected (and Delicious) Recipes for Canned Beans

SERVES: 2 to 4 PREP: 5 to 15 minutes TOTAL TIME: 5 to 25 minutes

Easy to use in just about anything.

Okay, if I'm being honest, canned beans are usually the thing you buy just to have on hand (or store in your home survival kit), and then are forgotten. But they're actually a very easy-to-use pantry staple and there’s tons of variety. I'll usually add them to stews and soups, but you can use them in just about anything for added texture and protein. If you can't decide, here's three different ways to try them!

For the White Bean Hummus:

  • 1 (15-ounce) can white beans, drained

  • 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 clove garlic

  • Paprika, for garnish

  • Veggies, chips, pita chips for serving

For the Fast Black Bean & Corn Salad:

  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce of your choice, or more to taste

  • ½ cup corn kernels (frozen, canned, or fresh)

  • ½ small red onion, diced

  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and diced

  • ½ cup chopped cilantro or any herbs you have

For the Franks, Beans, & ‘Shrooms:

  • 1 can baked beans

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 hot dog, thinly sliced

  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped

  • 2 drops liquid smoke, 1 teaspoon chopped chipotle in adobo, or ½ teaspoon smoked paprika

  • Buttered toast
