Move over, pinto. There’s another, even creamier bean that’ll make you pine for the perfect tortilla chip to pair with your dip.
Native to Mexico, Peruano beans have a pale yellow color and a pleasant mild flavor. Due to their creamy texture, they can easily be subbed for other beans – pinto, navy or cannellini – in all your favorite recipes. They’re most often found in refried bean dips, pasta dishes, salads and soups.
Peruano beans are packed with plant-powered nutrition – just one ¼-cup serving provides 7 grams of filling fiber and 10 grams of satisfying protein; it’s no surprise that these legumes are beloved by vegetarians, dieters and foodies alike.
Soak overnight, rinse and combine 1 cup Peruano beans with 4 cups water (enough to cover beans completely) in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender.
Once cooked, there are many ways to enjoy Peruano beans:
- Add to your favorite soup, salad or pasta dish
- Serve over yellow, white or brown rice
- Combine with other legumes in bean salad
- Use to make a creamy dip
