Adzuki beans are a small, red bean that originated in Asia and are commonly used in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean cuisine. They are high in protein, fiber, and nutrients like folate and iron. Adzuki beans have a slightly sweet and nutty flavour, and can be used in a variety of dishes.
To prepare MARKAL's organic adzuki beans, you will need to soak them in water overnight or for at least 8 hours. This will help reduce cooking time and improve the texture of the beans. After soaking, rinse the beans and place them in a pot with fresh water. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer the beans for 45-60 minutes, or until they are tender. You can serve the cooked beans as a side dish, or use them in soups, stews, and salads. They are a nutritious and flavorful addition to any meal.
