Adzuki Beans - 1.75 lbs


Adzuki Beans (Vigna Angularis) are a small, oval bean that is reddish-brown in color with a thin white line down the side. The Adzuki bean is about 1/4 long with a nutty, sweet flavor and firm texture. This is a bush bean rather than a vine bean. The Adzuki is native to East Asia and was brought to the U.S. in the mid 19th century. When steamed with rice, the Adzuki bean gives the rice slightly pink color which is quite attractive. The Adzuki is also referred to as a Adsuki, Aduki, Asuki, Azuki, Feijao, Tiensin Red, Field Pea, and Red Oriental bean.

The Adzuki bean is the main ingredient in asian red bean pastes. To achieve this it is often boiled with sugar creating this delicious paste. You can do the same very easily with your own adzuki beans and use the bean paste for a variety of different asian dishes.

Suggested Use:
This bean is commonly used in Asian cuisine. In Japan, Adzuki beans are used in confections. Simmer with lentils and vegetables for a hearty stew, or add cooked adzukis to stir fry recipes.

Other Names:

adsuki, aduki, asuki, azuki, chi dou (Mandarin), feijao, field pea, hong xiao dou (Mandarin), red oriental, Tiensin red, Paseolus angularis (Botanical), Vigna angularis
