  1. Good Meaty Bean 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 6th 2019

    I love using these beans. I add a smoked ham hock to the beans for flavor and some thyme, oregano and bay leaf. Sometimes I have used dried orange rind or fresh zest. But I add it right at the end for a bit of a surprise, hidden flavor. These are also fun in 1pound packages as a holiday gift. Elegant Beans has a great variety of heirloom beans and I appreciate their service.

    I order these periodically just so I can make the Christmas Lima Bean soup with Paprika. I use a mix of regular and hot paprika, and we love it!

    I cooked these Christmas Lima beans in my instant pot (added a diced onion and green bell pepper - garlic, oregano, thyme, smoked paprika & liquid aminos) and I could eat them every day they are so good. Going to try and use in vegan patty recipe too.

  7. Best Beans Ever 5 Star Review

    I'm a bean lover and am trying many of the different beans from Elegant Beans. This is my favorite. It is a rather large, thick bean with a meaty texture and nutty flavor. My husband loves it. I served it simply over rice with sauteed onions and bell peppers with some hot paprika for kick and toasted garlic. Yummy

    I bought the first bag at Raley's and made the Christmas Lima Soup recipe from Williams Sonoma. It was so good I ate two bowls and froze the rest to take to our monthly potluck and then got on line to order more of the beans. only change was I used 1/2 Hot Hungarian Paprika and 1/2 the regular Hungarian Paprika.

  9. Christmas Lima bean soup 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 1st 2016

    I made the Christmas lima bean soup with bacon and it was very good. It called for 1/3 cup paprika but I only put in 1 1/2 tablespoons and it was enough. The bean had a good taste and held its shape in the soup.
