With over 4000 antioxidants, black beans contain the highest amount of antioxidants compared to every other variety of bean. Black beans also contain flavonoids, which not only cause their rich black shell color, but also credit them to being an excellent source of phytonutrients. Because they are rich in healthy fiber, adding black beans to your diet can keep you feeling fuller, longer.*
The healthiest way to cook black beans is on a stovetop; just add three cups of fresh water for every cup of dried beans. Bring the beans to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, partly cover your pot for one to one-and-a-half hours until your black beans become tender.
