Lean protein dinners: dishes with beans for every taste

To survive Lent, it is not necessary to infringe on your desires and eat healthy, but not quite delicious food. You can not eat animal food, and at the same time eat fully and tasty. Beans are one of those products that can replace meat. It is delicious, healthy and satisfying.

And to make it even tastier to eat, MustHub has made two recipes for you that you will definitely like. One of them you can prepare when you, for example, need to urgently receive guests, and the second-if you have the time and desire to experiment and cook something unusual.
