Recipe - Super Delicious and Healthy Sweet and Sour Adzuki Beans (Vegan or Vegetarian)
This is nothing like the Asian sweet adzuki bean soup that is everywhere on YouTube. It has more of a Moroccan feel to it. It is a very delicious dish that can be made with almost any other bean or lentil, too. It's really good eaten over rice, quinoa or with a nice hearty bread--of course, you can eat it on its own, as well. Tip: When cooking beans or other pulses, do not add salt until near the end of the cooking process, when beans are almost fully softened (approximately 15 minutes before); otherwise, the beans remain hard for a much longer time. Happy cooking!
