Description

Organic Adzuki Beans are great sprouted.

Organic Adzuki Beans (red mung beans) are high in vegetarian protein so are great in stews and curries instead of meat.  If you enjoy sprouting then these are very rewarding little sprouts which grow easily and quickly for salads and garnishes.

Organic Adzuki beans only require 1-2 hours of soaking before they are ready to cook which makes them more convenient than other bean varieties which need 8-12 hours of soaking.

They are known to be the most ‘yang’ or warming of the bean family in Asian cultures.  In East Asian cuisine adzuki beans are often sweetened and blended into red bean paste for use in desserts.  These tasty beans are high in Folate and a source of Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Manganese (per 70g serving)

Their dark red colour signifies their antioxidant status and they are rich in flavanoids.  Adzuki beans are also high in protein, fibre, folate and manganese.

Family Tip:

  1. We sometimes soak and cook adzuki beans in bean chilli or stews, but we prefer to sprout them. Simply soak them for 8-12 hours and then rinse and drain them. Leave them in a sprout bag or jar.  Repeat the rinse and drain cycle 2-3 times for little bouncy sprouts!
