THE BEN­E­FITS ‘Kid­ney beans are a good source of zinc, which helps to strengthen your im­mune sys­tem,’ says Bond. ‘They con­tain a nat­u­ral toxin called lectin, so you must fol­low cook­ing in­struc­tions care­fully if you buy them raw. Canned kid­ney beans are fine be­cause they’ve been through a process to re­move this toxin.’

HOW TO EAT THEM Not just for chilli con carne. Drain, rinse, toss and throw into a sum­mer salad.
