Rice beans are a unique dried bean variety that does not have to be pre-soaked prior to cooking. They get their odd name based on their appearance: these small pill-shaped relatives of the kidney bean look like large (1/4th of an inch long) grains of rice.
Store dried rice beans in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
RECIPES & TIPS
Use rice beans anywhere you need cooked beans in a hurry. They work particularly well in pasta and vegetable salads
Basic Cooking Technique:
Prior to cooking, dry Christmas lima beans should be soaked in water for three to eight hours (ideally overnight) and then rinsed.
To cook on the stove top, cover the soaked & rinsed beans with about an inch of water. Bring the water to a boil, then immediately reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover the pot and let cook until the beans are tender. Each cup of raw Christmas lima beans will yield about 2 ¼ cups of cooked beans.
