Humble beans reach stardom in their Greek, flavourful version. Meaty, versatile, and hard-to-find, they are grown in small family farms in Northern and Central Greece. What's more their "purely" Greek identity nestles within packaging which apart from being handmade and inviting, tells you a story that has led it all the way to prestigious awards!
Forget what you've known about beans so far. It's not just that Agrifarm beans come from the fertile regions of Northern and Central Greece where they are grown following integrated management principles that keep them away from pesticides and chemicals. They are part of Agrifarm's ambitious Family Farms Project which means they come from small, Greek family farms where agriculture is a way of life and a link to tradition. As an added bonus, Agrifarm beans are meaty, flavorful, thin-skinned, easy to digest, and boil in no time. Beans, these multi-faceted, multi-talented stars of nutrition, have such a high nutrient content that they come highly recommended by nutritionists and health specialists who advise that beans should be consumed on a weekly basis by everyone. Being an astounding source of plant protein and chockfull in indispensable nutrients such as iron and zinc, vitamins, and antioxidants, beans are one of the capstones of the highly acclaimed Mediterranean Diet. Low in fat, they are exorbitantly high in soluble fiber which works towards dropping blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. Still, their stardom status doesn't stop at their health benefits. The Greek way of eating beans as the main ingredient of "fasolada" bean soup, has led many to assume that beans are a winter food but the myth is about to be debunked. Bulky and substantial, they can be eaten throughout the year in a dizzying range of fabulous recipes, as an ideal meat alternative that keeps you sated longer and tastes delicious.
Prep & Usage
Place beans in a cooking pot and soak them overnight. They'll soften, require less cooking time, and treat your digestive system gently.
The only thing you "must" do is boil them. The rest is up to you, whether you make a traditional Greek "fasolada" bean soup, clay-bake them in the oven, or include them in a good-for-you, satisfying salad with fresh vegetables, finely chopped herbs, olive oil, lemon, and oregano. The result will be always the same: beans to tell a story about!
