Also called “New Mexico Cave Beans,” these small heirloom beans were cultivated by The Anasazi Indians who lived in the four corners area (now Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico) dating back to 130 A.D.
Packed with protein and fiber, Anasazi’s are also rich in potassium, iron, and folate. They’re also known to be easy on the digestive system.

Cooked simply with a bit of garlic, onion, a bay leaf and salt to taste once they begin to soften, the beans are a tad sweet and the broth is delicious. They can be eaten any way you like or incorporated in other dishes but don’t pass them up!
