Sweet   •  Buttery  •  Hearty 

  

These delightful yellow beans are beloved in Coastal Mexico for refried beans, and perfect for tacu tacu, a favorite in Peru to use up leftover beans and rice. We love their smooth, buttery texture and rich golden broth, making a brothy bowl of these beans a meal in and of itself. They have a mildly sweet flavor and are one of our top picks for recipes calling for white beans, where their creaminess can shine.

 

Looking for heirloom and organic beans? You're in the right place. There are plenty of nuances when it comes to beans, and our beans are from recent harvests, packed with flavor and nutrition, and grown by climate-conscious family farms.

Nutritious for all human beans

Bean

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

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 ;)

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

Simply great beans

There are so many things to love about Primary Beans, one being the opportunity to savor a wide variety of select beans from Lesley and Renee, who wrap so much passion around this simple delicacy. I’ve loved all of the beans I’ve tried and I love having recipes that raise these legumes to culinary heights. The stories behind the beans connect us to a rich world heritage. And, getting them at my doorstep couldn’t be easier. Thanks so much!

Mayocoba beans

I’ve always loved Mayocoba beans. They are large, mild and sweet, with thin skin and creamy texture. Any type of white bean dip would be elevated by Primary Beans’ Mayocoba beans. Toss in some kale and Italian sausage, olive oil and crusty bread - it doesn’t get any better. But, yes, It does get better. Because purchasing Primary Beans’ Mayocoba beans ensures they are fresh and finely grown by an authentic, generational, farmer/dietician woman - Fran Arbogast in Michigan - good ol USA. Now it definitely doesn’t get any better than that.
Thank You Primary Beans!

My favorite

I love all of my Primary Beans, but the mayocoba may just be my favorite. I soaked them overnight and then boiled them in fresh water (with a dash of salt) before cooking them into Tuscan White Bean Soup. They are soooo delicious! The flavor is very delicate and they cook down beautifully into a light, soft flavor. So grateful to Primary Beans for offering varieties I never knew before!
