ORGANIC SANGRE DE TORO BEANS
These rare, long, flat beans are named "bulls blood" from their deep red hue. Usually found in kitchens throughout Latin America, the color adds a greater amount of antioxidants when compared to other beans from the area. The skin thins when cooked and almost melts in your mouth. Sangre de Toro beans are dense but without starch, a perfect pantry staple.
WHAT TO DO WITH THEM
Use these in any recipe that calls for red beans. One of my new favorite recipes is our take on red beans and rice. This 100% vegan version of the cajun classic will fool even the most ardent meat eaters! It's been tested and approved by our Baton Rouge taste testers. We're ditching the traditional ham and sausage and replacing it with umami filled kombu. The natural glutamates in the kombu enhances the flavors of the dish like mother nature's MSG and the umami mimics the meat products nobody will ever miss them. All the flavor, none of the carcinogenic meat products. Did you know that the World Health Organization recently categorized bacon and sausage as carcinogens?
ABOUT THE MAKER
Primary Beans is a brand-new, sister-founded purveyor of single-origin dried beans from recent harvests on a mission to place the almighty bean at the forefront of meals that are good for people and the planet.
Linsey and Renee are fifth-generation Arizonans from a small town on the Mexican border. Like any border town kids, they grew up around the culture and flavors of Northern Mexico. Early on, they developed a deep appreciation for beans and were the kids asking for “no rice, only beans please” at the local restaurant.
Turning their passion into a mission, the sisters created Primary Beans to deepen our connection to the food we eat and the land it comes from. They ethically source fresh, delicious beans from their network of family farms to deliver them to your table.
