Organic red kidney beans – per 100g
Vibrant and easily recognisable, these bright beans can be used in so many more meals than just chilli
These organic kidney beans have a reddish-brown exterior and a soft, creamy flesh when cooked. Take care when cooking as they contain toxins on the outer skins but this is rendered harmless by boiling. They are great in mixed bean salads and stews and, best of all, in a mixed bean chilli (check out our recipe here). To cook, soak overnight, rinse then boil for 1-2 hours until tender.
