It depends on what kind of beans. Kidney beans are high on protein, baked beans do have protein but also have a lot of fat, and green beans are high on protein but not as high as kidney beans. The beans that are highest in protein are soy beans followed by fava beans and kidney beans. Processing soy into tofu increases the nutrition that humans can absorb.
