About Red Kidney Beans Organic
Organic red kidney beans are one of the most popular bean varieties. In the Netherlands and Indonesia, kidney beans are usually served as soup called brenebon.
Kidney beans are an excellent plant-based source of protein. They’re also rich in various minerals, vitamins, fibers, antioxidants, and other unique plant compounds. Therefore, these beans may aid weight loss, promote colon health, and moderate blood sugar levels

Store organic red kidney beans in a dry and sealable food storage container – we recommend glass. Keep the container in a cool, dry and dark area out of the sun and heat.

How to use
Red Kidney beans must be pre-soak in plenty of cold water (in a large bowl with room for beans to double in size) for a minimum of 5 hours before cooking.
Drain, rinse well and place kidney beans in a pot of cold water, 1:2. Bring to the boil and cook for 10-20 minutes, before reducing heat and simmering until tender – about 1½-2 hours. Do not add salt while cooking, as this can make outer skins of legumes tough. Drain and use, or refrigerate for up to 2 days. Kidney beans can be chilled and added to salads or used hot in hearty soups and hotpots.
They are particularly good in curries and spiced dishes; try cumin and coriander seeds with freshly grated turmeric and ginger, or add chilli for extra zing. Red Kidney beans are also wonderful refried in Mexican burritos and enchiladas. Left-over spicy beans are a scrumptious topper for baked potatoes with grated cheese or sour cream. These beans are a delicious ingredient for vegetarian burgers, while smashed kidney beans are great in dips; mix with spicy salsa and serve with avocado and crackers.
