Carrington Farms' Ground Lupin Bean is touted as a "deliciously different side dish" that's derived from the lupini bean, a nutrient-rich legume that comes from the same family as chickpeas and lentils. The unique side dish is available in both plain and seasoned varieties, and it takes only a matter of minutes to prepare. Carrington Farms recommends its gluten-free and protein-rich Ground Lupin Bean as an alternative to quinoa or rice, although the product also has the potential to be used as a salad topper or breading.
While the plain variety also lends itself well to the creation of breakfasts like Breakfast Lupin "Oat"Meal, the flavored Garlic & Herb and Spanish Style varieties could potentially be used to create everything from meatballs to dips.
Lupini beans are appearing in a wide range of snacks and meals, especially as health-conscious consumers seek out better-for-you swaps and explore more plant-based eating.
