These dry beans have a sweet, nutty flavor and can be sprouted or cooked to a soft consistency. Popular in Asia and often used to sweeten desserts, adzuki beans are a great source of nutrients, fiber and can be served as a side dish mixed with rice or your favorite greens.
Some possible benefits of our Raw Organic Adzuki Beans may include:
● Good source of Folate, Manganese, & Potassium
● Very low in saturated fat, cholesterol & sodium
To Sprout: Soak 1/2 cup of organic adzuki beans in cool 70°F filtered water for 12 hours. Then rinse and drain well. Keep seeds out of direct sunlight and rinse and drain thoroughly with cool water every 8 to 12 hours for the next 3 days. You may stop when the sprouts are small or continue to rinse and drain every 8 to 12 hours until the sprouts have reached your desired length. Once this occurs, remove any seed hulls, rinse and dry with a paper towel. Once dry, put in a sealed container and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Yields approximately 1 cup (8 oz) of sprouts.
To Cook: Place organic adzuki beans in a colander and rinse under cold water. Soak beans for four hours or overnight. For each cup of soaked beans add three cups of water, bring to a boil. Reduce flame to medium low for 10 minutes, skim off and discard any foam. Cover and lower heat. Simmer on low for approx. 45 minutes
Hold off adding seasoning to beans until tender. Adding at the beginning will hinder the beans from cooking properly.
