Heirloom Bean Blend
Our Heirloom Bean Blend is a visually striking combination of beans, peas and lentils, each with a unique texture and flavor. This versatile assortment is a handy staple for adding hearty texture to classics such as soups, stews and salads.
Sort beans carefully to remove any possible foreign material. Rinse thoroughly, and soak overnight. Strain beans into a large pot and cover with fresh water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 to 60 minutes, or until tender. This bean blend produces foam when boiling, so skim the water regularly.

Beans, peas, lentils.
Our Heirloom Bean Blend is a hearty and visually striking combination of beans, peas and lentils, each adding a unique texture, color and flavor to the mix. Larger beans hold their texture during cooking, while smaller split peas and lentils add creamy thickness to classic recipes such as soups, stews and chili.
Specially formulated to offer an array of color and texture, this blend is perfect for recipes that call for multiple beans. Its simple, one-step cooking process also makes it easy to add a stunning assortment of legumes to any recipe.
Spicy, hearty and satisfying, this simple stew pairs our richly flavored Heirloom Bean Blend with Italian sausage, aromatics and fresh herbs. A last-minute addition of red wine vinegar adds tangy tartness to counterbalance the stew’s richness.
