I bought these beans at Whole Foods and looked through my extensive cookbook collection . I found only one recipe in Deborah Madison's vegetarian cookbook. I also googled them on the Internet. Does anyone have a good recipe for them.
I never heard of them, but there are myriad bean varieties. Are they simply black beans renamed? Beans are pretty interchangeable in recipes so I would use them for any recipe that calls for beans of a similar size.
No,they are not black; they look like white rice grains , only bigger! I think you are right about cooking them like any other small bean. Thanks for the answer.
Are these the beans? I'm intrigued b/c I'm looking for more options for GF meals. http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2646
They are smaller than the great northerns,cannelllini,etc. On thebin, it said to cook them for 40 minutes so I will do that and then proceed with some other white bean recipe.
Sounds like you could cook them as you do lentils.
I googled and this site popped up: http://www.zursunbeans.com/beans/
White rice beans are the last beans on the bean list--and there are also green rice beans.
This is great; I found the white rice beans with chile in their cookbook!
Check on ranchogordo.com. They might have a recipe for them. They are dried bean purveyors
