How to Use
Light Red Kidney beans must be pre-soaked in plenty of cold water (in a large bowl with room for beans to double in size) for a minimum of 6-8 hours before cooking. For about 2 cups of beans add 6-8 cups of cold water. This removes the naturally occurring Lectin and Saponin found in many pulses, which can impede digestion. Drain, rinse well and place kidney beans in a pot of hot water, 1:2. Simmer gently with lid tilted until desired tenderness is reached, 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. Yummy cooked 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.
