ANASAZI BEANS - Kosher/Gluten Free



Anasazi Beans, also called Cave Bean, are a small legume related to the Kidney Bean. These beans are ½ inch long, kidney-shaped, with a sweet, mild flavor and mealy, firm texture. Dappled burgundy and cream colors, Anasazi Beans resemble the colors and markings of the "painted horse". This bean will fade when cooked to form a dark pink.

Compared to other beans, it contains only 25% of the specific complex carbohydrates that produce gastric distress, making it a popular addition to soups, casseroles, and even burgers!

A great substitute for pinto beans.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Soak overnight.  Rinse and place in a large pot and cover with fresh water.  Bring water to a boil for 3 minutes, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for 1 hour or until tender.
