With chillier weather nipping at our heels , this week’s AICR Health-e-Recipe, Three Bean Soup, is a nourishing, stick-to-your-ribs way to keep calories low while enjoying a helping of dietary fiber (about 1/4 of the day’s recommended amount) for lower cancer risk. Check out AICR’s newly updated brochure, The Facts about Fiber, for the whole scoop.
Thanks to the protein in the beans, you serve this soup as a hearty one-pot-meal (alongside a hunk of whole-grain bread). Get creative by trying different bean combinations — navy, pinto and lima beans? Yum!

Three-Bean Chili uses beans to satisfy your appetite while adding cancer-fighting folate (a B vitamin), fiber and plant-based protein to your meal. Kids love ’em, they come in many colors and they’re used in almost every kind of cuisine.
And they’re cheap! Soak your own dried beans or empty a can into a colander, rinse and drain them. Then toss them into hot dishes, cold salads, or blend them with some salsa for a delicious, healthy dip.
