- Adzuki beans are rich in nutrients, such as fiber, protein and manganese.
- They are linked to several health benefits, including weight loss, improved digestion and a lower risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
- You can make them into a red bean paste, sprout them or simply boil them.
Adzuki beans can also be sprouted. To do so, place the soaked beans in a glass jar. Cover the mouth of your jar with a piece of cheesecloth secured with a string, rubber band or the lid band of a Mason jar. Then, invert the jar and secure at an angle to let the water drain and the air circulate between the beans. Rinse and drain the beans twice daily for 3–4 days, replacing the jar in the same position as before. Once the beans have sprouted, rinse them well and store them in a sealed jar in the fridge. Eat your sprouted beans within 2–3 days.Certified Organic
