Recipe

Do y'all know about black soy beans?  They are a pretty amazing lower carb, higher protein, high antioxidant alternative to traditional beans and the perfect addition to any diet, especially a low carb one.  Normally they come canned, although you may be able to find them dry in a health food store, and there are so many ways to use them.  One way is in today's yummy chicken taco recipe where they stand in for a more traditional black bean.  However these little low carb wonders also work great in hummus, chilis, dips, and almost any recipe calling for beans.  Since they can be hard to find, I usually stock up when I go to a health food store that carries them or order a bunch from Amazon.  Since they are canned, they last forever.
