Brami Beans

Ancient snack

Brand: Brami

Model: Beans


Our take They may not be well-known in the U.S., but people have been snacking on lupini beans since the Roman era. Following the same cooking techniques the ancients used, Brami’s Sea Salt-flavored beans are soaked for days to remove any bitterness before being cooked with lemon juice and spices. They’re then vacuum-packed to preserve their crunch. With a modest 35 calories per 15 beans, you can snack on them to tide you over until dinner, or throw a handful in your mac and cheese to bring down the overall glycemic hit from each bite.
