Reduced-Sodium Black Beans
Canned beans are a healthy-kitchen workhorse, but regular versions are too salty. Drain, rinse, add to soups and stews. And even salads. Or whir in the food processor with garlic, cumin, and olive oil for a quick dip.
GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Bush's.
Cooked perfectly, yielding the best bite with a creamy center. Nice salty balance with a subtle smoky aftertaste.
