Lupini beans are one of the most seldom used whole foods; it’s because of their slightly bitter taste that due to presence of alkaloids in them. These yellow colored beans look very much like flat fava beans and are mostly consumed as a snack in Mediterranean countries including Italy, Spanish, Lebanon and Portugal where people also name it as ‘Tremocos’. These take much more than normal time for cooking and need prolonged soaking in cold water followed by salty water marinade and lots and lot of drains before they’re cooked. Once they’re free from the bitterness, they taste amazingly good with wine or a pint of beer. However, due to their extended processing time, readymade Lupini beans snacks or meals might be costlier than other beans thus, cooking them at home with proper hygiene and patience is best.
