Red Calypso Beans
The Red Calypso Bean is a bi-colored member of the legume family, offering nutrient density, mild flavor and a creamy texture that performs well on its own or as a component among other ingredients.
Rinse thoroughly and soak overnight. Rinse and place in a large pot, covered with fresh water. Bring water to a boil for 3 minutes, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 60-90 minutes, until tender. This bean produces foam when boiling, so skim the water regularly.
Storage & handling
Store in a cool, dry place.
This bright, colorful salad plays on the tropical connotations of the red calypso bean’s name, combining it with mango, sun-dried tomatoes and a cumin-infused lemon-honey vinaigrette. This salad can be served at room temperature, or prepared ahead of time and chilled prior to serving.
