Aduki Beans are reddish-brown beans which have a cream coloured seam and sweet, nutty flavour. They are popular in Asian cooking & most often used for sweet dishes including soups, desserts or even as dim sum filling.


Aduki beans are prized for their health-giving properties: reputedly benefitting the liver and the kidneys. In Japan they are ven classed as the King of Beans! The Japanese and the Chinese like to cook, purée and mix with sugar to make a chocolatey paste which is used to fill cakes and desserts. Yum!
