Bean Identification Quiz

Can You Identify the Bean?

You might think that since New Year's is over, there are no more holidays to celebrate for a while, but you're wrong: today is National Bean Day! For thousands of years, legumes have served as a staple ingredient to virtually every culture in the world because they're nutritious, healthy, and affordable.

As Americans become increasingly conscious of their waistlines and their spending, I predict that the country's obsession with beans will continue to grow.

The real question is, how do you fare when it comes to identifying them? Find out when you take our quiz.

well i guess i did better than i thought i would. it's interesting to me that there are SO many varieties of beans. i've never been a HUGE fan of them, but as time goes on, i find myself trying more and more dishes that include beans.
