Preparation

Note from Ricardo

To replace the meat, poultry and fish proteins at low cost, legumes are an excellent choice. All legumes are cheap and nutritious, whether it is a lentil soup, a chickpea salad or white beans in tomato sauce. Canned beans is a great shortcut to always have in the pantry.
