According to oriental medicine; adukis (adzukis) are regenerative and toning to the kidneys.
Adzuki beans are easy to digest, and although they have a distinctive flavour, they taste less "beany" than many other beans. the preferred cooking method is to soak them in cold water for two to three hours and then simmer them on top of the stove for about an hour and a half. they also cook well in a steamer or pressure cooker. in japanese cooking, they are used in desserts in a sweetened paste called an, koshi-an, or tsubushi-an. when adzukis are prepared with rice, the rice takes on a beautiful reddish-purple tint from the beans.
