Ingredients: Organic Dried Red Kidney Beans (100%)
Kidney beans, once cooked, can be enjoyed cold in salads or made into purées with the addition of oil and served as a dip. Red kidney beans are often associated with chilli con carne.
Dried beans should be soaked overnight. If you don’t have much time, start them in hot water and then four to five hours should be enough.
Throw away the soaking water when the beans are plump and slightly softer and the skins are no longer wrinkled. Rinse them well.
They must be cooked in water – without salt – before adding to any other dish. Only then do they get the additional slow cooking that allows them to absorb other flavours.
It’s common in some dishes to cook them until they disintegrate, making a thicker, emulsified sauce.
