do you consider them like contour, just like salad and tomatoes? or do you choose them as a single dish? hr in italy we often use them as contour but in real they must be considered as a substitute of meat, so a single dish. I like beans with onion and a little bit of oil, i eat them once or twice a month. what about you?

No I prefer them as the main meal, eating them with bread.

We eat beans quite often. We love them in burritos, with pasta, with rice, in stews, and in salads. They are often a substitute for meat for us because we're vegetarian.
