Best tasting bean EVER!Review by CateHas a buttery nutty taste, no bitterness. Blends beautifully with everything. Makes great hummus, add to cold salads and any cooked vegetable . Great on rice. You can put it anywhere. No problems digesting. Lifts up soups. We even saute them in olive oil and eat them on whole wheat pasta. You will love them! I even pureed some with some cream and thickener, and used it as a vegan "gravy" on baked potatoes.
Yummy mild, slightly sweet flavorReview by hephtsibah98I boiled this rice beans with rice for my child that loves white rice, and it was a hit!
I'm sure it will make a delicious cold salad as the main ingredient, with diced tomatoes, bell peppers and sweet onions, and a light dressing (YUM!).
My orders arrived in a timely manner; I can always count on Northbay trading for quality.
I am back for more!
Easy to Prepare — a little makes a lot
- First, sort beans for any foreign matter and then rinse. Some cooks like to do a preliminary soak by soaking beans in water overnight or for at least 8 hours.
- After optional soaking drain and rinse beans.
- Next, place beans in a pot, cover with sufficient water, and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, adding water as needed. Simmer time will vary depending on soak time and size of bean.
- Alternatively, some cooks prefer to use crock pot techniques.
- Note: As with any supply of dry natural beans, this product may contain small pebbles, so please remember to sort your beans first.
Yield — 1 cup weighs about 1/2 pound. 2 cups of dry beans equals about 4-5 cups cooked beans.
