Foodie Guide: Adzuki Beans

Adzuki beans or red beans are popularly used in sweet recipes in Japanese cooking. You will find Adzuki beans baked into breads and pastries, turned into paste and used to fill mochi and cakes as well as a sweet soup or pudding called Zenzai that we’re currently selling at the market.

Adzuki beans, also called aduki or azuki beans, are small, red, dry beans often used in Japanese and Chinese dishes. Their small size lets them cook more quickly than other beans, and they have a reputation for not causing quite as much of a gas problem as other beans. Once cooked, eat the beans plain; mixed with sticky rice to form a Japanese dish called “osekihan;” or ground up with sugar to form red-bean paste.
