Organic Haricot Beans – the start of baked beans!

Organic Haricot Beans are a popular bean as they form the main ingredient of ‘baked beans’ and go well in a range of delicious  recipes like chilli and bean burgers.

Haricot beans can be used in any bean stew or chilli and even made into a hummus style dip.  They lend themselves to a range of flavours and are very versatile alone or mixed with our other bean varieties such as organic black turtle beans, organic turtle beans or organic kidney beans.

If you want to get creative with sprouting at home, then haricot beans sprout within 4-5 days and can be used as a nutritious garnish or side dish.  Take a look at our sprouting guide if you haven’t tried it before.
