Have you ever tried adzuki beans? They are also called “aduki” beans. They’re similar to black beans but are reddish in color and less starchy than black beans. Adzuki beans are very high in fiber and micronutrients and make great additions to any vegetarian or vegan diet.

Adzuki beans are also extremely versatile and are used for both sweet and savory styles of cooking. They are also rich in manganese, magnesium, and copper. They’re typically found in the grocery store as dried beans, but fortunately, these red beans are easy to cook and use for just about any dish!
