Tomatoes with beans make for good protein for seniors
So this is lunch and a satisfying one too. Just fry up some onions and add cut up tomatoes and put in the cooked beans. Season to taste.
Beans have 22g of protein in 100 grams of beans, quite a respectable ratio. Older people who need more protein because they absorb less could have beans in a variety of ways
And of course the next day you can use up beans by making fritters. You will need to keep them moist with a bit of oil, then whizz up, add fried onions, 2tbl flour, grated vegetable of your choice, 2-3 eggs, 1 tsp baking powder and seasonings. Drop into pan and fry lightly. Serve with salad.
