Did you know? … All types of beans should be boiled for at least ten minutes to break down the toxic phasin. Beans have to be harvested laboriously by hand. As a supplier of vegetable protein, various vitamins and dietary fibre, it is hard to imagine vegetarian-vegan cuisine without them.
In the vegetable compartment of the fridge, the beans can be kept for a maximum of two days.
