  3. Side dishes: Beans can be served as a side dish, either on their own or mixed with other ingredients. For example, black beans can be served as a side dish for Mexican food, or baked beans can be served as a side dish for barbecue.

  4. Veggie burgers: Beans can be mashed and formed into patties to make vegetarian burgers.

  5. Snacks: Roasted chickpeas and other beans can make a nutritious and crunchy snack.
