Adzuki Beans are small, round beans that are dark red in colour. They have a light, nutty flavour that is slightly sweet. They are popular in Asian countries and are often sweetened with sugar and made into Ôred bean pasteÕ for use in desserts and porridges. Delicious in savoury dishes with rice and other grains, they are also superb cooked in a hot pot, when added to soups, and folded into stews.

To cook Adzuki beans, pre-soak in cold water for 1-2 hours. Drain and place beans in a pot of cold water. Bring to the boil, reduce to medium heat and simmer until tender Ð about 30-40 minutes. 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. Yummy cooked Adzuki beans can be added to salads, warming soups and hotpots.

For delicious vegetarian burgers, combine lightly fork-mashed beans with grated veggies such as carrot and zucchini. Mix with the batter of besan flour, spices and cold water. A thinner batter can be used to make fritters. Adzuki Beans are often used in Asian cooking including stir-fries, curries and desserts.

In Japan, they are used to make a sweet red bean paste, Anko; or combined with mochi rice in a porridge called Zensai. Smashed beans are great in dips; mix with pureed beetroot, sumac spice or chilli. Versatile and convenient dried Adzuki beans are a handy pantry standby.
