Navy beans, white beans or Boston beans, are a small-sized legume. The name "Navy bean" is an American term coined because the US Navy has served the beans as a staple to its sailors since the mid-1800s. Our Navy Beans are 100% Australian grown, non-GMO and have no added preservatives. They have a light flavour, natural savoury aroma and smooth texture when cooked. and traditionally used as baked beans and are great in vegetarian recipes.
Some Tips To Use:
They should be pre-soak in plenty of cold water at least for 3 hours before cooking. This removes the naturally occurring Lectin and Saponin found in many pulses, which can impede digestion. Drain, rinse well and cook them for 60-90 minutes.
As a general note, DO NOT add salt while cooking any type of beans, as this can make their outer skins tough. You can add diced tomatoes, chopped fried onion, chopped mushrooms and garlic-infused olive oil to have delicious home-made baked beans. Add some chilli if you like chilli food to see how beautiful it is.
Yummy cooked navy beans can be added to your choice of salads or used in the hotpots. They are particularly good in curries and spiced dishes. These beans are a delicious ingredient for making vegetarian burgers or a great dip when you smash and mix with spicy salsa and serve with avocado and crackers.
