I'm the bean everyone is talking about. I can be turned into many yummy sweet dishes including ice cream! A staple of the macrobiotic diet, where they’re referred to as the most ‘yang’ or warming of beans, adzuki beans are loaded with natural goodness, including protein and dietary fibre! With their strong, nutty-sweet flavour, they're particularly popular in oriental cooking, but are great hot or cold in
just about anything – soups, salads, hearty meals, or desserts!
TO COOK: Soak overnight. Add 1 cup of beans to 4 cups boiling water. Cover and simmer for 40-60 minutes, until tender.
