Heirloom European Soldier Beans, Organic


 Product Description

Traditional Minestrone

This classic bean’s inkblot-like patterning may be open to interpretation (can you see the toy soldier it’s named after?), but we can all agree that SHILOH FARMS Heirloom European Soldier Beans are a welcome addition to any kitchen!

A New England staple for over 300 years, creamy European Soldier Beans hold their shape well when cooked, making them an especially good choice for slow-cooked dishes like soups, stews, and baked beans. Also, because they are delicately mild themselves, they pair well with a wide variety of assertive flavors.

An excellent source of nutrients (especially protein, fiber, and iron), this heirloom variety has also been known as Johnson Beans, Red Eye Beans, and Saint-Esprit a Oeil Rouge Beans.

For even more wholesome, healthy goodness, try our entire line of Heirloom Beans: Christmas Lima BeansJacob's Cattle Beans, Orca Beans, and Yellow Eye Beans; and Heirloom Grains: CanahuaEinkornEmmer FarroGreenwheat Freekeh, and Multi-Color Popcorn

To Cook: Sort and rinse. Cover with water and soak overnight. Drain, then bring 2 cups fresh water and 1 cup beans to boil. Reduce and simmer 1-1½ hours, or until tender. Drain and serve.

*Cold soaked and cooked at a very gentle simmer, beans should retain most of their nutrients.

1. Try in traditional New England-style baked beans. 
2. Ideal for slow-cooked soups, stews, or casseroles.

3. Pair with smoked ham hock and seasonal vegetables for a simple and stunning entree.
4. Swap for navy, Great Northern, or other white beans in recipes.
5. Mix with fresh herbs and seasonal vegetables for a quick, but hearty, salad.

  1. Terrific taste

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Apr 2019

    As with other Heirloom beans, the Soldier Bean cooks much quicker than ordinary beans.

    Though appearing similar to the Yellow Eye Beans before cooking, the color cooked color is darker. It produces its own sauce while cooking and has an amazing, rich mellow flavor, making it perfect for weeknight main dishes, while being hassle free. It's rich flavor is versatile with other vegetables.

    Standard beans just don't compare to the heirloom beans, it is clear that whatever advantage they might offer, it is to producers and shippers, and not to those doing the eating as they are shockingly tasteless and time consuming to prepare.
