Dinner ready in 15 minutes?

And only in one skillet?

Sign me up for that!

This one is highlighted by adzuki beans, the smaller cousin in the legume family.

Adzuki beans are packed with protein, fiber, and potassium! In fact, these beans (and most legumes for that matter) have more potassium than the famed banana!

So if you’re looking to bump up the potassium intakes, beans and legumes are the way to go!

Enjoy!
