When it comes to nutrition, black beans - also known as black turtle beans - pack a powerful punch. They're low in fat, high in fibre and an excellent source of the B vitamin folate. And they're as versatile as they are nutritious. With a rich flavour and meaty texture, black beans are a welcome addition to soups, stews, salads and Mexican-inspired dishes.
