Red kidney bean


The red kidney bean is a hearty bean with a deep dark red color. His name has to do with its form: they are shaped like a kidney. The red kidney bean is the star of the most delicious chilis world-wide. It is a versatile bean, because you can also use it in tacos or tortillas, as an addition to salads or soups and you can even use this bean to make burgers.

general advice for preparation

Soak the beans in cold water for approximately 8 hours. Rinse them. Put them in a pan in cold water and bring to the boil, without adding salt. Simmer the beans gently in 1 to 2 hours until cooked, while checking occasionally for tenderness and to inspect if there is still enough water in the pan.


When you keep them in a dark and dry place they keep very well for at least one year.
