I have a can of Eden Organic black soybeans. Does anyone have a recommended recipe for black soybeans that will really let them shine (i.e. rather than just treating them as a black bean substitute)?
There is a traditional Japanese New Year dish made with black soybeans -- http://norecipes.com/blog/kuromame-black-soy-beans/
I also found one from Mark Bittman, in the Everything Vegetarian book -- Cook 1/2 pound dry black soybeans. When cooked until nearly tender and water has almost evaporated, add 1/4 cup sugar, 2 Tb mirin, 1/4 cup soy sauce. Cook and stir, still firm not quite tender and quite moist. Stir in 2Tb dark sesame oil. Serve at any temperature, sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds.
You could also check the Eden site or contact them for suggestions.
The 2 recipes are similar. I haven't made them, but I will try when I find the black soy.
