Alubia beans (organic)

$9.00

Nutty  •  Smooth  •  Supple 

 

These small, versatile beans come top of mind when thinking about Mediterranean-inspired dishes. We love their smooth, firm texture and mildly nutty flavor, making them a great candidate for really, anything from hearty soups to herby salads. They readily absorb flavor and pair deliciously with lots of garlic, skin-on chicken, and fatty meats like chorizo or pancetta.

USDA organic certified

Harvested: Winter 2020/21

Use a pressure cooker

Skip the pre-soak step

Salt early and liberally

Plant protein: Boost your plant-based protein intake, naturally. One cup of cooked beans provides ~16 g of protein (varies by bean).

Lots of fiber: Beans have an impressive 12-20 grams of fiber per cup (varies by bean). Fiber helps keep your cholesterol levels at bay and your digestion in check ;)

Sustained energy: The complex carbs in beans keep your blood sugar levels steady, helping you feel energized for hours.

Key nutrients: High in iron, zinc, folate, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants (oh my!), beans have everything you need to feel healthy and happy daily.

Sourcing notes

The state of Zacatecas, northwest of Mexico City, has a rich history of thriving nomadic tribes as old as the Aztecs, and is the original site for some of the world’s first beans. Today, thousands of experienced small-scale farmers are Mexico’s leading producers of guavas, chiles, nopales, and, of course, beans– benefiting from the sunny, semi-arid climate and rich, red soils.

We partnered with Armando Klein of Darmstadt Organics, who helped organize the farms in his community into a cooperative– so that they can benefit from shared resources and collectively innovate, like achieving organic certification and promoting crops that are important symbols of regional identity.

Soooooo tasty!

I cooked these in the instant pot with just some water, salt and bay leaves and they were amazing! Will repurchase.

Fantastic!

These little beans are amazing! I can't stop eating them. I love how small and delicate they are. They also cook much faster than other beans because they are so small! Alubia beans are my new favorite (sorry chickpeas!)

Addictive

These were insanely good. I cooked them in stock with about a 1/2 cup of (unsweetened) honeycrisp apple juice I happened to have on hand, with a bay leaf. My husband said they were "addictive" even just straight out of the pot :)
