Servings: 10 people
  • 300 gr uncooked lupini beans
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • Water (a lot)
  • Olives (optional)
  1. Cook the lupini beans in boiling water for 45-50 min over medium-high heat. The water must be always covering the beans, so add more if needed during the cooking process.
  2. Rinse the beans and soak them in clean water. Change the water completely 4-6 times a day for 4- 7 days until there is no bitter taste in the lupini beans.
  3. In a glass container add the beans. Cover with clean water. Season with salt, minced garlic, and if you desire a stronger flavor some olives. Seal with a lid and store them in your fridge for up to 1 month.
