Kidney Beans, Dark Red

Kidney Beans, Dark Red
(Beans, Kidney, Dark Red) We could not find a lot of specific information about dark red kidney kidney beans; however, on eHow, we did find this comment: "Dark red kidney beans and light red kidney beans, while slightly different in color, are extremely similar in flavor, texture and nutritional value. While the two beans are actually different species, they can be used interchangeably." Dark red kidney been have a slightly thicker skin than the lighter red species, but we could find nothing about the specific species name, and references still list them as native to Central and South America. Dark red kidney beans, like other kidney beans have a whitish interior.  We use these cooked dark red kidney beans on our salads, in chili, and in other recipes calling for kidney beans.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
