Lupini beans are one of the few beans available that contain no starch, but are rich in protein and fiber. A member of the pea family, these lupini beans are yellowish-brown and can be recognized by their small holes at one end. Households in Mediterranean countries, such as Italy, Lebanon, Spain, and Portugal, traditionally serve lupini beans as a tasty snack, first cooking, then chilling and salting them before serving. The natural presence of alkaloids gives these beans a slightly bitter taste. We like to cook our lupini beans in boiling, salted water until tender, then drain and rinse them for several days until the bitterness is drawn out. Then we like to marinate them for a day or two and serve them chilled. Marinating these beans makes the flavor possibilities virtually endless.
Each bag contains 16 oz of lupini beans.
