Health benefits:

Eating a variety of different plant foods are important for maintaining the diversity of your gut microbiome and achieving optimum gut health. Choosing mixed beans gives your gut that diversity in one meal. Beans are a great source of plant-based protein, dietary fibre and B vitamins such as folate.

Sourdough has also been shown to be more easily digested compared to other bread varieties, making it a great option for these hearty homemade beans.
