A half-cup of these legumes gives you 8 grams of protein, about as much as you’d get from 1 ounce of lean steak. They come in lots of colors -- brown, green, black, yellow, red, and orange. They cook up faster than beans. And you don’t even need to soak them first. Try the brown ones in veggie burgers, the green ones in salads, and the red ones in a spicy curry.
