Next up on our list is Legumes! Legumes can be very intimidating to a lot of people so this is a great one to help people realize they aren’t so bad. Here are some ideas to help people use, and understand legumes a little better:
Options that are Free or Under $1
12 Bean Soup
Purchase a 1 lb bag of 12 bean soup mix from the grocery store. Tie a ribbon around it and include the Day 7 Tags. If you want to be really ambitious you can include this 12 Bean Soup Recipe on a cute recipe card too. It’s delicious!
An Option that is $5-$30
Ever tried sprouting? Well if you know someone who wants to get into the really good stuff, give them this sprouting kit and as a bonus, include a few of the legumes that are good for sprouting! Sprouting is a great way to use some of your food storage, and it’s super healthy and nutritious! Add your Day 7 Tags and it’s the perfect food storage gift.
A More Expensive Option
Here’s another one of those – if you’re feeling REALLY generous gifts. This electric pressure cooker is a DREAM come true for cooking dry beans. No pre-soaking, waiting hours, and worrying about your beans turning out ever again! Don’t forget your Day 7 Tags.
