Variety is a good thing, both for taste and health. Get both.

adzuki beans have a VERY different flavor than other beans. They're pretty sweet. They are used to make candies and other sweet treats in Japan. They can be used in soups and such, but I recommend trying them first. I can't stand them most of the time.

I don't care for adzuki beans myself, except as red bean paste.

i love adzuki, i like to make a soup with them and some sugar.. as mentioned though they're almost always eaten sweet. In a sweet potato soup or something they'd be good...



Yes, soy has more protein per serving but they're both protein rich. I'd buy a variety of beans including black beans, kidney beans, red beans, chickpeas, navy beans, canelli beans, lima beans, lentils, etc. Keeping variety in your diet is a good thing--eating the same thing day in and day out will only ever get boring.



PS, you mean grams, not mg.

Adzuki beans are great for making bean sprouts like mung beans. As someone said, they also have a different taste. Hey, experiment, get types that you have never had. I love the dahls (small chick-peas) and other Indian beans.

Canned soy beans are the first ever beans I took a bite of went "blarrghh" and had to throw them out. I like edamame, I like soy things, I figured what could be bad? they were truly nasty. I've never tried Adzuki beans as I've only seen them dry and I'm a bit on the lazy side for dry beans.

I love adzuki beans-- they make a good meat substitute in pasta sauce and on top of pizza.



Being small they have more surface area per unit of volume --so they have relatively more chewy skin and less pasty insides (I do like the pastiness of many beans but I find it is not such a good quality for beans used in pasta sauce.) And they cook up faster than larger beans.



When we were in Hawaii on our honeymoon, we came to a shop that sold shave ice with sweetened adzuki beans on top. It was weirdly different, but tasted good.

I love aduki beans. I like to cook them up in some brown rice with some garlic. And it's fun because it turns the rice purple!
