Royal Red Kidney Beans


A royal red kidney bean is so named since it is shaped like a kidney. Its dark red skin is a source of confusion. Known also as the red bean, there are other red beans, such as the smaller Azuki beans and the red type ricebeans. Kidney beans have a strong flavor, thus its use in a variety of dishes across cultures. They are widely used for chili recipes and bean salads, as well as an ingredient of mixed bean curries. Usually found dried, red kidney beans must be soaked for at least 12 hours before cooking. To prevent flatulence, change the soak water once or twice during soaking. Dried red kidney beans also need to be boiled briskly to remove the beans' inherent toxin.
