If you know and love lupin beans, then here is a delish way to dress em up. If you are new to lupini beans, let me introduce you to your new favourite snack.
“Beans!? As a snack!?”
Yes. Beans as a snack. These little dudes are super fun to snack on, kind of the same appeal as pistachios. In order to eat them, you aim the little fish mouth of the bean into your mouth, and bite, or pinch the bean, so the skin of the remains behind, and the delicious bean middle pops into your mouth. It may take some practice, but you have a whole bowl to learn with.
You can find them in cans or jars for very little cost, that will do you for several servings, and they take less than 5 minutes to prepare. I have experimented with dressing them up lots of way, but this Cheezy Lupini Bean seasoning is my favourite. Yum Yum!
Cheezy Lupini Beans:
1 small bowl of lupini beans (I used about 1/3 of the can for this serving)
big spoonful of nutritional yeast
couple pinches of thyme
a few shakes of chili powder
a small drizzle of maple syrup
salt and pepper
Put your lupini beans in a bowl. Add your big spoonful of nutritional yeast, your pinches of thyme, shakes of chili powder, drizzle of maple syrup, salt and pepper. Stir it up, taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
