All beans, properly soaked (even a two days soak if needed, for red kidney beans for example), and well cooked, are similar. That is because the lectins are similar though with varying amounts. If you want really light beans, make them into natto.... (more)

The dehydrating alone is not making them crispy: the starch coating and frying is making them crispy. Yes, the dehydrating helps. However, the moist-and-yet-crispy bite to them is undoubtedly from the frying. Consider dehydrating them much, much... (more)

If you're seeing benefits from eating beans I say eat em, who cares if they're paleo or not. Tubers and root vegetables are probably a better source of carbs, but that doesn't mean you should shun beans if they work for you.

Botanically they're legumes. Personally, I regard young bean and pea pods and pea shoots as acceptable vegetables since the problematic compounds develop in the more mature seeds.
