Burritos to Bean Dip: 10 Bean Dishes for Warmer Weather

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to work more beans and other legumes into my daily diet. This was easy-peasy during the colder months, but I’m struggling to find lighter bean dishes now that warmer days are upon us. A few recipes are below, but I could sure use some help. Any ideas for warmer weather bean dishes?

One trick for lighter bean dishes is to think about the beans themselves. White beans like cannelloni and great northerns are fantastic in cold picnic salads or as a spread on sandwiches. Black beans were our favorite for winter chilis, but they’re just as at home in soft tacos and veggie burgers.

3. Rosemary-Lemon White Bean Dip (also good on sandwiches!)

What are your favorite warm weather bean dishes?
