Black beans from north dakota

North Dakota is home to a bean with a dense, creamy texture that is so loved that even the water used to boil it becomes an ingredient for tasty soups.

Black beans, a main ingredient in the culinary tradition of Central America, are also very popular in the United States. These North Dakota black beans, specially selected by AMÍO, are a characteristic bright black colour. Their soft, tasty flesh lends a unique creaminess to recipes, like the Mexican-style black bean soup, with the addition of smoked pancetta.

Beans are a great alternative to animal protein, especially if combined with cereals. In addition to their attractive colour and delicious taste, they are a valuable source of protein, carbohydrates and mineral salts, as can be seen in the daily reference intake (RI%). Did you know that 70g of these beans provide approximately 32%* of your daily protein requirement?

*RI% = reference intake for an average adult (2000 kcal). Reference intakes suggest the total amount of energy and nutrients that a healthy adult should consume on a daily basis.

Consigli di utilizzo

We recommend soaking these beans for 12 hours. After soaking, rinse them in cold water before putting them in a pot with 500ml of water for every 100g of beans.

Allow around 70g per person: bring the water to a boil before covering and cooking on a low heat for 50-55 mins.

Once cooked, add salt for flavour and to prevent the beans from becoming hard and crunchy. If using a pressure cooker the cooking time should be halved.
