Store dried tiger eye beans in a cool, dry place.
Because tiger eye beans have such thin skins, they can fall apart easily when cooked (and are thus best suited to refried or pureed applications). Use them in soups, chilies, stews, cassoulet-style dishes or as refried beans.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Soak tiger eye beans in water overnight & rinse them prior to cooking.
Put the soaked beans in a pot on the stove top and cover them with fresh water. Simmer the beans until tender (1 ½ to 2 hours). They can also be cooked in a pressure cooker instead for about 20-25 minutes.
One cup of dry tiger eye beans will yield approximately 2 ½ cups of cooked beans.
