Red Kidney beans..

My mother had to get a food parcel as things are grim this week. And we got a tin of red kidney beans which we never have had. What it taste like and what do you do with it.

I am thinking of using it to bolster mince to make the mince go further..

i've seen a recipe for a vegetarian shepherds pie that uses red kidney beans. Actually looks delicious- if you want recipe let me know. Also uses capsium and onions i think

Cool thanks how would you describe the flavour of it?? is it similar to baked beans in flavour??

It's the sauce in the baked beans that has the flavour, so think about the bean without the sauce, and the kidney bean is similar. My chili con-carne would not be ccc if it didn't include kidney beans, they really are great.
