I used to eat them at one time and found they sprouted well.

I love adzuki beans - they are a much heartier and filling bean than kidney beans are for me - even if they are only neutral. They are also good for people who tend to hold fluid - they have mild diuretic properties.

Adzuki bean burgers are a good one to make, they're a favourite at our place. You need some eggs to make up the mixture. Cook the beans first.. Add some herbs and spices and a little salt too. It's a recipe I just cook off the top of my head so I can't remember quantities etc but play it by ear. They do fall apart more easily than normal burgers - I think I normally solve this by an extra egg? Anyway, I'm sure you'll work it out.

My uncle who hates "health food" really liked the burgers, my aunty made them for him one night. He wanted to know what kind of meat it was, he thought they were really tasty!

I add adzuki beans as a replacement for kidney beans when I make my Indian dahl curry.

The last time I made adzuki beans, I bought an heirloom brand and they were very different than the ones I've had previously. They had almost a beefy flavor, so, yeah, I bet they would be wonderful in a veggie burger.

Spiced Adzuki Beans and Kale

INGREDIENTS

1-cup dry adzuki beans
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
6-cups roughly chopped kale, stems removed
2 Tbsp. spring water
1/4-cup Thai Kitchen Premium Fish Sauce
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground coriander
Fresh ground sea salt and pink peppercorns, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

Check beans for debris and soak overnight. Drain and rinse well. Place beans in medium saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a full boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30-45 minutes, until al dente. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Sauté garlic for a couple of minutes. Add kale and 2 tablespoons water to skillet, and mix with garlic for one minute or so until heated through. Add fish sauce, cumin and coriander and continue to mix over heat. When adzuki beans are finished, add to skillet. Reduce heat to low, mix well, cover and simmer for another 20 minutes or so, until kale is tender. Season to taste.

NOTE: I like to place chopped kale in a large mixing bowl prior to cooking, coat my hands in olive oil and knead/massage the kale until it looks semi-wilted. I find that helping to break down the cellulose in this manner allows the kale to cook more easily. However, this is completely optional.

I'd imagine you could use adzuki beans in any recipe where you used to use kidney beans. I haven't personally tried them though. I've never seen them in the supermarket dried bean section, and I never branched out to looking at dried beans in gourmet or natural food stores.

I like them, and I do well on them.  But sometimes the brand that I buy are to hard, as if they were not fully cooked.

I might add olive oil, ground flax seed, and sea salt to the beans (mix thoroughly) and them dump them on a bed of Romaine lettuce.  Then top with Moz. cheese.  That's five super beneficial ingredients for me!


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Thanks all for the feedback, I cooked them this morning after soaking overnight ...they taste like kidney beans ...I will later cook some lamb mince and add them to it for my type O sons lunch and serve with basmati rice, I hope he will eat it   the burgers sounds like a great idea to try next !

I got mine from a health food shop...I was actually after pinto beans but they didn't have any so I bought Adzuki instead knowing both are beneficials for type O

The Japanese also use them a great deal in desserts. Google aduki dessert recipes for ideas.

I like to eat them, but I don't like the look of them cooked they turn out kinda messy!

So, if the appearance is a 'deal braker' go for black eyed peas-still very pretty to look at after cooking and a beneficial as well

I think there might be a price glitch here as well. Where I live Black Eyed Peas and Chickpeas are almost exactly the same price whereas Adzuki beans are almost double the price. I can see paying a premium price for a higher quality product but when the value looks to be equal it would a little foolish.

They are used extensively in the amazon kindle cookbook, Personalized Living....
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0076R49IE/ref=mp_s_a_1?qid=1341985756&sr=8-1

Those recipes were the first I tried and I really liked them...hummus, falafel, etc.

I'm going to modify the recipe a bit, I just read the label on my fish sauce and it is made with anchovies, avoid for me I wonder if Ume plum vinegar might be a good sub. I'm also using collards instead of kale, less bitter and less $$ and a diamond.

Yeah, that's why I never looked for  beans in the HFS, even though I know I'd likely find all kinds of goodies there. OTOH, beans are very cheap as foods go. Even double-priced beans still make for a very economical meal. If I were an A (and didn't need to spend so much money on meat) I'd likely branch out into more expensive beans part of the time.

Conor, the recipe is a keeper

My beans took much longer to cook, I suppose because they are kinda old.

I'm going to look for some fish sauce made with some other kind of fish because the flavor combo sounds very interesting.
