Eye of the Goat, aka Ojo De Cabra, is an heirloom bean from Mexico. It is a small gray bean with a dark strip which gives it the name “Goats Eye” and is a favorite in Baja California. It has a great flavor which is sweet with a smooth texture and can be served as a dish by itself.
It is also good in a pot of beans, stews and soups or chilled for salads.
The "gateway bean"

We love this beautiful bean, and fondly call it our "gateway bean". This bean's rich flavor, incredible pot liquor, and firm creamy texture is what turned us into heirloom bean snobs.
Delicious and pretty

This pretty and flavorful been maintains a delightful texture when cooked and tastes delicious. It can easily become a favorite.

Very pretty bean. I soaked these beans over night and cooked them with three other beans and they did not get as soft as I would have liked. I am not sure of what I could have done to have made the beans be soft.
Surprisingly sturdy, tasty beans

This is our first experience with fresh beans and first with "eye of the goat." Cooked the old-fashioned way, these have an exceptionally sturdy, satisfying texture --we'll want to reorder to replace this batch. Good choice.
